Prayer for Matthew 7:8

“For everyone who asks receives, and the one who searches finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”

Praying through Matthew 7:8

Heavenly Father, thank You for laying out so clearly the principles and practices that should govern our lives as we die to self and live for God. Thank You that my salvation does not rely on what I have done but on what Christ has done on my account. Lord at times I have tried to do things in my own strength, only to fail. Help we to live aright and pray according to Your word and will. Give me an understanding heart and the desire to live and work and pray in a manner that honours Your holy name. I praise and thank You that You are my sole Provider and I pray that I may pray according to Your will, seek to grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus and submit to the leading and guidance of the Holy Spirit. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
