Devotionals Daily: A Year with Jesus

From Lead Serve Love by Gregory Lang

Ask for Help

You cannot save yourself or conquer your own sin. But Jesus can, and he waits patiently, listening for you to call on him. Make your requests in his name, depending on the merit and mediation of Christ for God’s answer. Ask with willing submission to the Father’s will, saying in your heart, “Thy will be done.” Eagerly grow dependent on him who can do all things. Ask for help.

Ask, and God will give to you. Search, and you will find. Knock, and the door will open for you. Yes, everyone who asks will receive. Everyone who searches will find. And everyone who knocks will have the door opened.

--MATTHEW 7:7–8

So I tell you to believe that you have received the things you ask for in prayer, and God will give them to you.

--MARK 11:24

And if you ask for anything in my name, I will do it for you so that the Father’s glory will be shown through the Son. If you ask me for anything in my name, I will do it.

--JOHN 14:13–14

But if any of you needs wisdom, you should ask God for it. He is generous to everyone and will give you wisdom without criticizing you.

--JAMES 1:5
