Jesus encourages us to ask from our Heavenly Father, and promises that He will only give us what is good:
7 “Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
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!
Matthew 7:7, 11 RSV
Deliver me from my enemies, O my God, protect me from those who rise up against me, deliver me from those who work evil, and save me from bloodthirsty men.
For lo, they lie in wait for my life; fierce men band themselves against me.
Psalm 59: 1-3 RSV
What have you asked the Lord for lately, Dear Reader? Was it a prayer of desperation or inspiration, intercessory or personal? Did you pray with confidence, or hesitation?
Dear Reader, let us seek God's blessings with the humility of a child, and confidence in our Father.
