Matthew 7:7-11 – Jesus encouraged His disciples to pray, by explaining to them how God views their prayers, and promising how He responds to them. As God’s children, the promises Jesus gave His disciples apply directly to us today. So, what are God’s promises for His children who pray? There are many! In this text, we will look at three of these incredible promises.
7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. 9 Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? 11 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!
