The Relationship of Prayer

“Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being 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!” (Matthew‬ ‭7:9-11‬, NKJV‬‬)

“The Lord would remind us that the prayer of a child owes its influence entirely to his relationship with his parent. The prayer can exert that influence only when the child is really living in that relationship – in the home, in the love, and in the service of the Father. The power of the promise, Ask, and it shall be given you, lies in the loving relationship between us as children and the Father in heaven. When we live and walk in that relationship, the prayer of faith and its answer will be the natural result. So the lesson we have today in the school of prayer is this: Live as a child of God; then you will be able to pray as a child, and as a child, you will most assuredly be heard.”
