Matthew 7:7-12 begins with ask, seek, and knock…
As we brush away, for analogy's sake, the silt and sand from this form at the bottom of the sea, we see with clarity, before we take the time to clean it up, it is the treasure of prayer. But prayer for what?
Some apply this passage to general prayer.
Others believe and apply this intensity of prayer to seeking salvation.
And at least one other believes verses seven to eleven are an illustration of verse 12:
"Therefore, however you want people to treat you, so treat them, for this is the Law and the Prophets."
By the time we get done… in November, we will see all three as Biblical, profound, and beautiful applications.
Today we introduce Ask, Seek, and Knock, our call to prayer.
And since He bids me seek His face,
Believe His Word and trust His grace,
I'll cast on Him my every care,
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!"
