Answered Prayers

Matthew 7:8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

Matthew 7:8 completes the thought of Matthew 7:7.  The word "for" gives us the reason we should not grow weary in praying.  The believer's prayer is always answered as taught in verse 8.  If we ask in prayer, we receive it.  If we seek in prayer, we find.  If we knock in prayer, the door will be opened.  James tells us we have not because we ask not.  This applies to all areas of life.  We have not because we have not asked the LORD.  We do not have to get God's attention for we are his children.  He will answer our prayers.  His answers are always perfect.  When He responds or even when he doesn't respond it is for His glory and our good.  These verses give us the confidence to pray and pray and pray.  The greatest act of trusting in God is to call upon Him.
