The Gospel of Luke Chapter 11 v- 8 thru 10

8 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. 9 And I tell you, ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.

Both grace and persistence are important in opening doors for what we seek in God through Christ. For Grace refers to the unmerited favor and love of God. It is through God's grace that doors are opened for us. We can seek God's grace through prayer, faith, and surrendering our desires to His Will. Recognizing that we are dependent on God's grace allows us to trust in His timing and provision. Our Persistence involves perseverance, determination, and a willingness to keep seeking and knocking on the doors of opportunity. Jesus encourages us to ask, seek, and knock persistently in prayer. This means consistently and fervently seeking God's guidance and provision, even when faced with challenges or delays. By combining grace and persistence, we can align ourselves with God's plans and purposes for our lives. It is through God's grace that He opens doors for us, but our persistence and active pursuit demonstrate our faith and commitment to seeking His Will His Mercy His Forgiveness for Life Eternal. Amen.

Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. The Lord’s Prayer. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen Son in Law Mark Stern; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. Kairos 56. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Prayers for a friend and his wife for a baby to be born. Deacon Sam health and well-being. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Friendship theirs lie**

You tell I

Up get not

Friendship theirs lie

Persistence get lot

You tell I seek

Receive will you when asked

Find will you to greet

Opened door from knocking on your past

Receive by asking everyone

Seeks one who grasps

Knocking door opened by the Son

Greetings that will forever last
