Our Scripture reading today is Luke 11:9-13.
Verse 10, "For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened."
We are reminded in these verses that the prayers of God's people precede the moving of God. At the end of James 4:2 we read, "...ye have not, because ye ask not." Charles Spurgeon is quoted as saying, "Prayer bends the omnipotence of Heaven to your desire. Prayer moves the hand that moves the world." The asking, seeking, and knocking are meant to be done over and over again. Prayer time should not be limited only to the morning. In reality, we can and should ready to pray anytime. 1 Thessalonians 5:17, "Pray without ceasing."
As we mentioned in a previous church service, God is more than capable of meeting the BIG and small requests of His children. It is important that we bring every need to our loving heavenly Father. I am sure most of recognize that prayer isn't only asking, but prayer is asking. Could it be we have stopped asking for certain things that we think we can handle? It might behoove all of us to get back to the basics of even asking for our daily bread. God is our source for everything!
