THOUGHT OF THE DAY
Matthew 7:11 AMP
 If you then, evil (sinful by nature) as you are, know how to give good and advantageous gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven [perfect as He is] give what is good and advantageous to those who keep on asking Him.
John 14:14 AMP
 If you ask Me anything in My name [as My representative], I will do it.
•*•[Acting as Jesus’ representative means that the person calling on His name is in a close relationship with Him and wants what He wants.]
Philippians 4:5-6 AMP
 Let your gentle spirit [your graciousness, unselfishness, mercy, tolerance, and patience] be known to all people. The Lord is near.  Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to God.
