The first “answered” prayer

“Ask and it shall be given to you.” (Matthew 7:7) Have you discovered the generosity of God?  Have you settled by faith that God is infinitely able and graciously willing to GIVE you (to give YOU) all that is needed for life and service to Him?   “Let him ask of God who gives to all men generously and without reproach and it will be given to him.”  (James 1:5)  The Lord’s Prayer is actually evidence of the giving heart of God.  The words of Christ came as an answer to a request!  The disciples said,”Lord, teach us to pray” and He did!  It was immediate proof to them (and to us) that He will respond when we ask!  Prayer, for Jesus, was a matter of TRUST.  He knew the Father.  He trusted the Father.  He asked the Father for what He needed.  Dear friend, will you let Him teach you to pray with deep trust in God’s faithful response?
