Thursday of the Twenty Seventh Week in Ordinary Time ‘c’

LK 11:5-13

Jesus said: “Ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Really -- you may ask – yet you prayed so long, and God didn’t grant you your prayer request. You did ask, and you didn’t receive what you wanted. So, how should we understand those words of Jesus -- ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you? I think that in order to better understand what Jesus is telling us today, we need to continue reading today’s gospel, especially when Jesus says: “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?” When I read this statement, I begin to understand that when I pray and ask for something from God, God always listens to my prayers. But at the same time, He wants only what is best for me, and those are not necessarily the things of this world that I may believe are really necessary. I need to ask with faith, so that when I ask, I will receive even greater things that I had asked for. I may not understand this today, but one day I will.
