Pentecost 10 Preview

Sunday’s Gospel Lesson reminds us of the gift of prayer Jesus offers to the people of God.

So I say to you, Ask, and it will be given to 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

Prayer blesses us in many ways, as intimate conversation, as persistent pleading, and as confident petition, in that we know God listens to us and gives us what we need.  Our Second lesson for the morning from Colossians 2 reminds us, “As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith.”

As we live that life, every so often the Lord  asks us a question:
