Read Matthew 7:7–12

  • What stands out in these verses? 
  • What is most challenging to you about these verses?

    Andrew Murray suggested that Jesus returned to the topic of prayer because we have a natural doubt and distrust toward God and that we are comfortable praying, but not so much in waiting to receive an answer.

    What do you make of Murray’s assessment? How do the words ASK, SEEK, KNOCK resonate as encouragement in prayer?
  • Pastor Jason suggested that prayer is the fuel that readies our hearts so we can do the good of doing to others what we’d like done to us. How has prayer played a part in your doing good to others?

Pray for one another, and bless one another in closing.
