Jesus thanks God and calls us

And Jesus prayed, Father, Lord of Heaven and earth, thank You for showing childlike people what You have hidden from those who think themselves wise for this pleases You. Father, You have entrusted all things to Me, and no one knows Me as Your Son except You, My Father, and no one really knows You the Father except Me the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal You. May all who tire of heavy burdens, come to Me, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me because I Am gentle and humble in Spirit, and you will find rest for your souls. For the yoke I will give you is easy, and the load I will put on you is light enough to be borne. © 2013, Mary Harwell Sayler prayer-a-phrases the Daily Bible Reading from Matthew 11:25-30. ..

Golden prayer

And to His followers, Jesus said: Keep on asking, and it will be given to you. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep knocking, and the door will be opened. Those who ask receive. Those who search find, and a door will be opened for those who knock. Think of it like this: If your child asks for bread, will you give a stone shaped like a loaf of bread? If your child asks for a fish, will you give a snake shaped like an edible eel? If you, who surely aren’t perfect, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in Heaven give good to those who ask? But keep on doing to others as you want them to do to you, for this fulfills the law and the prophets. ©2013, Mary Harwell Sayler , prayer-a-phrase of Matthew 7:1-12 from today’s Daily Bible Readings ~~
