Fallen Condition Focus: Pride and wrong attitudes about the Father can keep us from asking for good things.
1. Knowing our heavenly Father.
2. Ask, Seek, and Knock, and don’t stop!
3. Trust in our Heavenly Father gives good gifts to those who ask.
7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. 9 Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? 11 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!
