He Invites Us To Pray // Matt Mackey, Matthew 7

He invites us to pray….

Matthew 7: 7-11

7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. 9 Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? 11 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!

Jesus invites us to pray

  • Ask- it will be given

  • Seek- you will find

  • Knock- it will be opened

Jesus gives us seven promises.

  • Ask

  • Seek

  • Knock

  • Everyone who asks receives 

  • The one who seeks finds 

  • The one who knocks finds

  • Good things will be given by your Father

God’s presence is experienced in different ways.

  • Everyone who asks receives 

  • We are praying to our Father 

  • Our heavenly Father is infinitely better

  • He gives us good things because he has given us the gift of sonship
