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:

Conditional grants become absolute upon the performance of the condition; so here, he that asketh, receiveth. Christ hereby puts his fiat to the petition; and he having all power, that is enough. It is illustrated, by a similitude taken from earthly parents, and their innate readiness to give their children what they ask. Christ appeals to his hearers, "What man is there of you, though never so morose and ill-humoured, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?". Whence he infers, "If ye then, being evil, yet grant your children’s requests, much more will your heavenly Father give you the good things you ask." Now this is of use, To direct our prayers and expectations, We must come to God, as children to a Father in heaven, with reverence and confidence. How naturally does a child in want or distress run to the father with its complaints; thus should the new nature send us to God for supports and supplies.
