Continuing on the theme of prayer, Jesus tells another parable to His disciples
about a man who asks his neighbor for some bread to feed an unexpected visitor.
The neighbor is reluctant to open his home up in the middle of the night,
but, Jesus says,
“I tell you, if he does not get up to give him the loaves because of their friendship,
he will get up to give him whatever he needs because of his persistence.
And I tell you, ask and you will receive; seek and you will find;
knock and the door will be opened to you.” Lk 11:5-13
Again, Jesus is speaking about our relationship with God.
A relationship built upon belief, respect, love and
communication, which is prayer.
God knows us. He knows our hearts desires.
And He wants us to be blessed in this life and beyond.
When our relationship between God and our neighbor is healthy,
God will ALWAYS answer our prayers.
All we need do, is ASK.
