Day Thirty: Simpson on "Ask, Seek, Knock"

Posted by Amy Roedding , in 40 Days of Prayer 31 May 2013 · 1698 views

Read: Psalm 66

Pray: That the Holy Spirit would be very near and give peace to those in the C&MA retirement centers – Shell Point, Deland, Chapel Pointe, Town and Country.


“Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened" ( Matthew 7:7-8, NLT).

The various degrees and forms of prayer are finely expressed by the three words, "ask, seek and knock".

Prayer is not only a matter of petition, but it is also a matter of patient and persevering search and it also is a force that breaks down the barriers which interpose, and tell us of the faithfulness of the great Hearer of prayer. He will not deceive us or put us off with a counterfeit blessing. From our own love to our offspring, He rises to the sublime argument, "If you then, though you are evil, know to how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him" (7:11).

A. B. Simpson
Taken from Christ in the Bible, pg. 37.

Father, help us remember to be patient and also to be willing to search in prayer! We are thankful that you are so faithful and that you are the great Hearer of prayer. Amen.
