Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. Matthew 7 : 7 – 8
Good morning, friends!
I read these stories long ago.
A little boy, on his way to his school every day, saw a Church. He didn’t know how to pray, so he simply went inside and knelt down and said to Jesus, “Hi Jesus! This is me, Jim.” This went on for many days. One day he didn’t come to Church. He was sick in the hospital. So Jesus went to him and said, “Hi Jim! This is me, Jesus!”
One more for you. :)
One little boy wanted a bicycle. So he wrote the following letter to God. “Jesus, I know I am not a good boy. But still I need a bicycle. Please give me one.” He realized that his letter would not convince God. He tore it up and wrote another one. This time, it was “Jesus, I will be a good boy going forward. I need a bicycle. Please give me one.” But he still was not convinced that God would accept it. He quickly went to a nearby Catholic church and stole the small statue of the Mother of Jesus, Mary. Then he wrote, “Jesus, I have stolen your mom. If you want her back, please give me a bicycle.” :)
Kids are always fun! Sometimes they are serious. Sometimes they are funny. Sometimes they think they are serious. :) However, their innocent prayers always matter! Jesus wanted His disciples not to restrict the children from coming to Him.
Even though we are adults, still to Jesus, we are His kids. He loves our innocent prayers. I read this in on the Internet. The Bible tells us to ask, seek & knock. These three are not different types of prayer, but different modes of prayer. That means praying to the Lord (asking), if the answer from Him is delayed (He is never late, but may be not at the time we expect), keep persisting until we receive it (seeking & knocking).
Stay tuned to know how a group of girls prayed when they were students!
Ask, Seek & Knock!
May God bless you!
