           "Ask and it will be given to you." Luke 11:9 NASB

All who desire the grace of God are to wait for it, first, in the way of prayer. This is
the express direction of our Lord Himself. In His Sermon on the Mount, after
explaining at length wherein religion consists and describing the main
branches of it, He adds, "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find;
knock, and it will be opened to you. For Everyone who asks receives, and he
who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened" (Matthew 7:7-8 and
Luke 11:9-10 NASB). In the plainest manner, we are here directed to ask in
order to receive, or as a means of receiving; to seek, in order to find the grace of
God, the pearl of great price; and to knock, to continue asking and seeking, if we
would enter into His kingdom.

That no doubt might remain, our Lord gives a peculiar parable of a father who
desires to give good gifts to his children, concluding with these words, "How
much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask
Him?" (Luke 11:13 NASB).

Jesus gives a direction to pray, with a positive promise that by this means we
shall obtain our request: "Go into your room, and ...pray to your Father who is in
the secret place; and ...He will reward you openly"(Matthew 6:6 NKJV).                   
O praise God for all you have and trust Him for all you want!
