Luke 11:7-13 New International Version (NIV)
7 And suppose the one inside answers, ‘Don’t bother me. The door is already locked, and my children and I are in bed. I can’t get up and give you anything.’ 8 I tell you, even though he will not get up and give you the bread because of friendship, yet because of your shameless audacity he will surely get up and give you as much as you need.
9 “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
11 “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead?12 Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 13 If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
Dear Lord, I am to never give up asking. I am never to give up seeking. I am never to give up knocking at your door. You will open the door to me. You say that when I ask, I receive. You say when I seek, I will find. You say that when I knock on the door, you will open the door. You are my Heavenly Father who gives much more to those who ask you. Thank you for being my Heavenly Father. Thank you for adopting me into your family. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
