Today we gathered in our Church-At-Home Hotspots and Matt rounds up with the final part of our 3week series called ASK - which is all to do with prayer! For more info please head to and email us for prayer today on [email protected] ....Here's the Message Notes to follow along today! ====Through ASK we are connecting My own Faith with the the one who answers Prayer=== ~MATTHEW 7: 7 [ESV] “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you." 4 LESSONS AROUND KNOCKING = = = = = = = 1: Knocking is a PRINCIPLE Gk. strike, beat in order to gain admittance ~MATTHEW 7: 8 [ESV] "For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened." everyone who asks, the one who seeks, to the one who knocks…. Knocking is a principle where Faith and Obedience Collide = = = = = = = 2: Knocking is PERSONAL ~MATTHEW 6: 5-8 [ESV] when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you pray, go into your room and shut [Gk. kleio - lock] the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. Cultivate the relationship with God and your faith with his Knocking is a personal action where Faith and Obedience Collide = = = = = = = 3: Knocking is PERSISTENT ~LUKE 11: 5-10 [TPT] Then Jesus gave this illustration: “Imagine what would happen if you were to go to one of your friends in the middle of the night, pound on his door, and shout, ‘Please! Do you have some food you can spare? A friend just arrived at my house unexpectedly and I have nothing to serve him.’ But your friend says, ‘Why are you bothering me? The door is locked and my family and I are all in bed. Do you expect me to get up and give you our food?’ I tell you—because of your shameless persistence, even though it’s the middle of the night, your friend will get up out of his bed and give you all that you need. So it is with your prayers. Ask and you’ll receive. Seek and you’ll discover. Knock on heaven’s door, and it will open for you. Every persistent person will receive what he asks for. Every persistent seeker will discover what he needs. And everyone who knocks persistently will one day find an open door. Knocking is the persistent action where your Faith and Obedience Collide = = = = = = = 4: Jesus will Personally enter in wherever the door gets opened to him ~REVELATION 3: 20-22 [ESV] 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me. 21 The one who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’” This is a Call to discover urgency in being a NEW CREATION, how MY FAITH and OBEDIENCE collide in Jesus to live fully alive today, fully sure of who God created in me, fully sure of my today and tomorrows….. = = = = = = = ~MATTHEW 7: 7 [ESV] “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you."
