You may be seated if you don’t stop worshipping. I’m not ready to preach yet but I do want to read something from the word of the Lord. I want to talk to you about very familiar stuff this morning. There will be nothing new but it will be a review lesson because I want to talk to you about prayer and what prayer means in our lives. So if you have your Bible and you wish to turn with me to the 11th chapter of Luke we will begin to begin to read at verse 5. And Jesus said to them, Which of you shall have a friend and go to him at midnight and say to him, a friend lend me three loaves. For a friend of mine has come to me on his journey and I have nothing to set before him. And he will answer from within and say, Do not trouble me. The door is now shut and my children are with me in bed. I cannot rise and give you. I say to you, though he will not rise and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will rise and give him as many as he needs. So I say to you, ask.

I don’t know a lot about Greek but what I remember from my course. It says to keep on asking. Be in the state of asking and it will be given to you. Seek and you will find. Knock and it will be opened unto you. For everyone who asks receives and he who seeks finds and do him who knocks it will be opened. If a son asks for bread from any father among you will give him a stone or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? Or if he asks for a nag, will he offer him a scorpion?
