Jesus said to his disciples: “Suppose one of you has a friend to whom he goes at midnight and says, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread, for a friend of mine has arrived at my house from a journey and I have nothing to offer him,’ and he says in reply from within, ‘Do not bother me; the door has already been locked and my children and I are already in bed. I cannot get up to give you anything.’ I tell you, if he does not get up to give him the loaves because of their friendship, he will get up to give him whatever he needs because of his persistence. “And I tell you, ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. What father among you would hand his son a snake when he asks for a fish? Or hand him a scorpion when he asks for an egg? If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?”
Our heavenly Father will give us exactly what we need. It may not be exactly what we want, and it may seem as if we have been asking for a long time with no answer, but we will receive exactly what we need. What can be good and fruitful for us to pray for is that God may give us what we need instead of praying for what we want or for what we think we need. As we do that, we conform ourselves to the will of God. As we do that, we continue to live in His grace and grow on the path to holiness.
Today, pray that’s God’s will be done in whatever you will be doing, particularly the activity on which you will focus most.
