SCRIPTURE AND SERMON Rev. Steve
Knowing God Through Prayer | Matthew 7:7-12
Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will you Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him! So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
Prayer Teaches Us Three Truths About God
1). A God Who Provides
2). The Lord is Our Righteousness
3). God Almighty
