Thoughts on Today's Verse...

God answers prayers! Recent research into patients recovering from surgery for whom others prayed validates this truth. Our experience suggests it is true. The Bible promises us that it is so. Luke emphasized one specific answer to prayer that God-seekers receive. God longs to give us a truly remarkable and wonderful gift: his presence in us through his Holy Spirit (Luke 11:13). Because of the indwelling Spirit, God can do more for us through his power at work within than all we can ask or even imagine (Ephesians 3:20-21).

My Prayer...

Loving Father, the sacrifice of your Son for my sins is an incredible gift. The blessing of salvation through Jesus is more wonderful than words can describe. The gracious gift of your presence in me through your Holy Spirit is comforting and empowering. Thank you for your assurance that as I seek you, you are eager to bless me beyond anything I can imagine. Thank you, in Jesus' name. Amen.
