What word is below you?

Above you when you remove one letter?

Around you when you remove two letters? 

Chair/ Hair/ Air 

What Activity is practiced by everyone?

Yet no one ever masters it?

And many have stopped believing in it? 

Prayer 

Is God Good? 

Someone with whom we share food is likely to be our friend, or well on the way

Parable of the friend seeking bread 

Luke 11:5-6 Then he said to them, “Suppose one of you has a friend, and he goes to him at midnight and says, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread, because a friend of mine on a journey has come to me, and I have nothing to set before him.’ 

Luke 11:7 “Then the one inside answers, ‘Don’t bother me. The door is already locked, and my children are with me in bed. I can’t get up and give you anything.’ 

Luke 11:8 I tell you, even though he will not get up and give him anything because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence/shamelessness he will get up and give him as much as he needs

Be Bold 

God wants to give good gifts when you ask   

Luke 11:11-12 Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion?

Luke 11:9-10 So I say to you: 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.

Keep on asking for God to provide 

Keep on seeking what has been lost 

Keep knocking for open doors 

A lifestyle of dependance 

God hears and answers every prayer 

God wants to give good gifts when you ask   

Don’t stop praying, Don’t stop calling on Jesus name, Keep pounding on heaven’s door, let your knees wear out the floor – Matthew West 

Father make a way 

God wants to give good gifts when you ask
