Our prayer motivator verse from the Word of God today is Matthew 7:7 which reads: "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you."

Allow me to share with you some important points regarding this verse from Matthew Henry's Commentary:

Now here, the promise is made, and made so as exactly to answer the precept. "Ask, and it shall be given you;" not lent you, not sold you, but given you; and what is more free than a gift? Whatever you pray for, according to the promise, whatever you ask, shall be given you, if God see it fit for you, and what would you have more? It is but ask and have; ye have not, because ye ask not, or ask not aright: what is not worth asking, is not worth having, and then it is worth nothing. "Seek, and ye shall find," and then you do not lose your labour; God is himself found of those that seek him, and if we find him we have enough. "Knock, and it shall be opened;" the door of mercy and grace shall no longer be shut against you as enemies and intruders, but opened to you as friends and children. It will be asked, who is at the door? If you be able to say, a friend, and have the ticket of promise ready to produce in the hand of faith, doubt not of admission. If the door be not opened at the first knock, continue instant in prayer; it is an affront to a friend to knock at his door, and then go away; though he tarry, yet wait.

We will discuss this verse further in the next broadcast.

Our prayer motivator quote today is from Donald Whitney. He said: "Praying without ceasing means you never really stop conversing with God; you simply have frequent interruptions."
