Re:Verse passage – Luke 11:5-13 (day six)

Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires. Psalm 37:4

Heavenward prayer and delight in the Lord are cousins, or as Scott Lane might say, two sides of the same coin. Persistence and trust spring from a heart that is enamored with God’s Kingdom (Luke 11:2) and certainty of its reality. Or said another way, you only keep knocking if you are certain of the reward.

Heavenward prayer flows from a heart that delights in the Lord. God promises to answer that kind of prayer; any other is a clamoring gong.
