Ask and it will be given to you

Matthew 7:7-8: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.

Sin we committed have shut and barred the door against us, by prayer we knock. Whatever you pray for, according to the promise of Jesus, shall be given you, if God see that fit for you, and what would you have to more in your life? So often we are afraid to ask for because we have to admit we do not have the answers. Prayer is the appointed means for obtaining what we need. Pray and be serious and earnest in it. Ask, as a beggar begging alms. Ask, as a traveler looking the way. Seek, seek for a thing of value that we have lost, or as the merchantman that seeks goodly pearls. Knock, as he that desires to enter into the house knocks at the door. God wants us to use the principle of beg and bring our hearts before Him. This is made to apply to all that pray aright, every one that ask receive, whoever Jew or Gentile, young or old, rich or poor, high or low, master or servant, learned or unlearned, all are alike welcome to the throne of grace, if they come in faith. This is explained by a comparison taken from earthly parents, and their readiness to give their children what they ask. Parents are often foolishly fond, but God is always wise, he knows what is our need, what is our desire, and what is fitting for us. Let us never suppose our heavenly Father would bid us pray, and then refuse to hear, or give us what would be hurtful.

My Sweet JESUS please give me the patience until I receive that special gift You have kept for me. I am sorry that so often you only hear my grievances and complaints and concerns. Help me to keep my heart set on you and your will. Infant Jesus cover us with your feathers and under your wings we shall take refuge and we shall make your truth my shield and buckler. Through Infant Jesus we pray. Amen.

We do not love the Blessed Virgin specifically because of what we obtain or hope to obtain from her; but we love her because she is worthy of our love.
