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.
