"So I say to you, Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find;
knock, and the door will be opened for you.  For everyone who asks receives,
and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will
be opened."  ~Luke 11:9-10

"Behold, I shall stand at the door and knock.  If any person hear my voice
and open the door, I will come in and remain with that person and that
person with me."  The knocking of God's spirit, asking God to come into our
lives, is due to no merit of ours, though it is in response to the longing
of our hearts.  We can keep a listening ear, an ear bent to catch the sound
of the gentle knocking at the door of our heart by the spirit of God.  Then
we can open the door of our hearts and let God's spirit come in.

.=: P R A Y E R   F O R   T H E   D A Y  :=.

I pray that I may let God's spirit come into my heart.  I pray that it may
fill me with an abiding peace.

home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the courage
and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for those who
have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!
