Prayer is a window into the origin of your soul. The human instinct to pray is hardwired into us.Add Notes
Now Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray…Add Notes
And he said to them, “Which of you who has a friend will go to him at midnight and say to him, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves, for a friend of mine has arrived on a journey, and I have nothing to set before him’; and he will answer from within, ‘Do not bother me; the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed. I cannot get up and give you anything’?Add Notes
I tell you, though he will not get up and give him anything because he is his friend, yet because of his impudence he will rise and give him whatever he needs.Add Notes
And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.Add Notes
What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will instead of a fish give him a serpent; or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”Add Notes
And he told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not lose heart. He said, “In a certain city there was a judge who neither feared God nor respected man. And there was a widow in that city who kept coming to him and saying, ‘Give me justice against my adversary.’ For a while he refused, but afterward he said to himself, ‘Though I neither fear God nor respect man, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will give her justice, so that she will not beat me down by her continual coming.’”Add Notes
We are his children and He is our tender Father.Add Notes
Prayer changes the world.Add Notes
declaring the end from the beginning
and from ancient times things not yet done,
saying, ‘My counsel shall stand,
and I will accomplish all my purpose,’
Before a word is on my tongue
you, LORD, know it completely.
Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling,Add Notes
“Does God know the day you’ll die? Yes. Has he appointed that day? Yes. Can you do anything to change that day? No. Then why do you eat? To live. What happens if you don’t eat? You die. Then if you don’t eat, and die, then would that be the day that God had appointed for you to die?”
– A.A. HodgeAdd Notes
“Quit asking stupid questions and just eat. Eating is the pre-ordained way God has appointed for living.”Add Notes

– God is not like an unjust judge, and we are not like an annoying old widow to Him.
– She is in court of law. We are in court of grace. (Hebrews 4:12)
– She was a stranger. We are beloved children. (Matthew 11:13)
– She had no access. We have a way made open by the very blood of Jesus. (Hebrews 10:19–22)
– She had no promise or guarantee. We have the promise of the Gospel. (John 14:13, Isaiah 49:15)

One thing I ask from the LORD,
this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock.
