“For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” Matthew 7:8
Text: Matthew 7:7-11
Apostle Peter was arrested by the agents of King Herod and kept in the innermost part of the prison. The church then gathered in the house of John-Mark’s mother to pray for Peter. Before they could conclude the prayers, God answered by sending His angel to release Peter from Herod’s prison. The people that were still praying were surprised to see how soon their prayer was answered (Acts 12:3-17). God delights in answering our prayers, but He does not always answer them in the way we think they should be answered. Sometimes, God says “yes” to us; sometimes He says “no”. At other times He can say “wait.” We can always trust Him to choose the answer that will give Him the most glory and be best for us.
God answers prayers in different ways, but He always answers in a way that shows His power and His goodness. The basic thing is that God answers prayer. Ask what you need from Him. If you are a sinner, ask for the Salvation of your soul now. Thereafter, you can pray for other Christian experiences and the Lord will grant you all the desires of your heart. “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:” 1 John 5:14
1 John 5:14-15
