Matthew 7:7 Daily Devotional
Jesus is inviting us to pray for our desires here. He doesn’t want us to just pray, though; he wants us to seek it out.
The application here is easy: pray. The waiting is the hard part. We have to align our hearts to desire the things God desires and wait for the Lord to answer prayers. We have access to the Father through Jesus, but not everything we pray for is in our best interest. Just like a loving parent is to a child, so God protects us from ourselves sometimes.
Thank you for listening to my prayers. Even when I don’t often know what to say, you still listen and even pray for me. I submit my needs and desires to you, knowing that you will provide for me. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
