Ask, Seek, Knock!


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!

Be Beautiful!!!

And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Hebrews 13 : 16
This is a great story that I have read on the internet. 

When the house lights dimmed and the concert was about to begin, the mother returned to her seat and discovered that her son was missing. She took him to the concert to show her appreciation toward his progress on the piano lessons. Suddenly, the curtains parted and spotlights focused on the impressive Steinway on stage. In horror, the mother saw her little boy sitting at the keyboard, innocently picking out “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” At that moment, the great piano master made his entrance, quickly moved to the piano, and whispered in the boy’s ear, “Don’t quit, keep playing.” Then leaning over, Paderewski reached down with his left hand and began filling in a bass part. Soon his right arm reached around to the other side of the child and he added a running descant. Together, the old master and the young novice tra…

When love touches you!

Warm greetings!! I have been quite busy with my little one. Yes, I have been blessed with a baby girl after a wait of more than 3.5 years and she is 3 months old today, by the pure grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Please keep her (Janice) in your prayers.
“Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.“ 1 Peter 1: 22
As I read this verse, this morning, I was carried away in my own thoughts as to how I can love from the depth of my heart. Is it even possible? Peter once behaved as an unfaithful one to Jesus to whom he was so close for about 3.5 years, when he denied Jesus to the core. He even cursed him as he was scared for his own life, and now it is quite funny to hear about deep love from such a person, by the way. J
After my baby girl was born, to be honest, I could not say if I really loved her. Because my mind was completely occupied by recovery, long days and nights, sleep deprivat…

God of second chances!

For with God nothing shall be impossible. Luke 1 : 37
Do you feel that you are going nowhere just because you find yourself stuck with things that bother you? Then this is absolutely for you.
Yesterday, I was surprised to see Siddhu smiling at me early in the morning at around 6:20 AM.  He is 5 years old now and I live in his home as a paying guest. He held my hand and took me downstairs to show me a thick piece of paper on which he had cut and pasted Angry Birds’ green pigs. (Angry Birds is a game in which the players use a sling shot to launch the birds at pigs, with the intent of destroying them.) He had cut these out of the fruit gummies wrapper I had given him the previous day. He also colored the entire sheet of paper in green. While I stood, surprised to see how cute that was, he again took me to the kitchen, opened a cupboard, and gave me a yellow fruit gummy. He had never done that before. I told him that I hadn’t even brushed my teeth yet. He replied, “That’s fine. Take it up …
