"For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened." NIV
"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you." KJV
Sometimes it seems like we ask and ask, seek and seek, but we get nothing. It is easy to get discouraged at those times. If we do an honest self examination, we will find our asking and seeking are from selfish motives. It is the pure in heart that receive.
Heavenly Father, forgive us when we think of our own agendas when we come to you with our petitions. Help us to look inward so that we seek you with pure hearts. In Jesus' name, Amen.
