The Blessings of the Cross - PRAYER
 
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks, the door will be opened."
- Matthew 7:7-11
 
The Power which spins the comets and the stars through incredible space and whirls the particles within each atom, the Power which pulses in the sun and the rain, in life and in death, this Power can be approached and will listen when I ask for relief from pain or forgiveness for the careless gossip I spoke yesterday. Not any of the other religions of the world ever dream of such a thing.
 
Why not? Because they lack Jesus Christ. The man Jesus hung upon the Cross and died with a prayer on His lips. By that death and by that prayer He became a great, single voice in the Universe which supports our prayers, for "there is one God and one Mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus," On our knees we are never alone; there is always this . . .

By that death and by that prayer He became a great, single voice in the Universe which supports our prayers, for "there is one God and one Mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus," On our knees we are never alone; there is always this other great Voice speaking for us and with us, the Voice of the man who has earned the right to pray for us, to be our Mediator, because He gave His soul into death and rescued us from a silent, voiceless, prayerless life by His prayerful death: "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do."  Here, then, is the divine answer to this great mystery: the Cross has given us the power to pray, a Person to pray with us, and a Mediator to pray for us.
 
Christian friends, God is not reluctant to respond, but in His infinite wisdom He knows the best answer and the best timing. So keep on asking.  Then, when the provision comes, you'll know the value of persistent praying.
 
Pray on, then, child of God, pray on;
This is thy duty and thy task;
To God the answering belongs:
Thine is the simpler part--to ask.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - Delay is not denial--pray on!
