February 25, 2010 Thursday of Lent

Jesus said to his disciples:
“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; and the one who seeks, finds;
and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened." - Matthew 7:7-8


Here, Jesus assures us that our prayers will be answered. All who ask the Lord for help will receive it. So, what is the catch? The catch is that God's will will be done, not ours. Prayers are often answered in unexpected ways. Many times in life this is a source of frustration. After all, we know what we want and how we would like to be. We bring that to God, and He does something totally different. Yet, He knows best, and often in hindsight we can see God's hand working in our lives. When we pray, we can trust that God will shape our lives the way that they are supposed to be.
