TOPIC: THE KING GRANTS OUR REQUESTS TEXT: MATTHEW 7: 7 - 11 A person in need always looks for the man in authority to present to him his request. Sometimes, it may take a long time to plan how to meet the man in authority. Sometimes, people are even forced to bribe their way to get access to the powerful person. But, as we see in today's reading, the reverse is the case with our loving and merciful King who is opening the gates of His palace and inviting His subjects to bring their requests anytime the need arises. The Lord used three words, (ask, seek and knock), to give clarity to the message. He promised to grant the requests of His children, being a righteous Father. Man's righteousness can't be compared to God's, the only righteous one!
Do you believe that your Father in heaven listens to and grants your prayer?
Oh Lord, help me to trust You, knowing that You always listen to and Grant my prayer requests, in Jesus name, Amen.
