Thursday of Week 27 Year 1

How persistent are we in praying to God for His bounty? Sometimes when we ask for something and we don't get it, we may give up, thinking that God is never going to grant us our needs. However, if you look closely at the Gospel, we can identify 2 important points. The first is, are we persistent in asking? The second is, are we asking for our own selfish needs or is what we are asking ultimately for His glory? After all, in the Our Father, we pray "thy Kingdom come, thy will be done." If what we are asking is ultimately to glorify God, then surely what we "ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you." Otherwise, we may be asking so that Our Kingdom come and Our will be done.
