“Should not the judge of all the world act justly?” Abraham’s question lies, spoken or unspoken, on the tongue of every petitioner. Will God hear a just suit? Does God answer every prayer? Does God care? In today’s New Testament readings, Jesus and Paul both respond with a resounding yes. “For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened,” Jesus says emphatically. And Paul reiterates: “Even when you were dead in transgressions,” incapable of hope or of prayer, God brought you to life with Christ, “having forgiven us all our transgressions.” But prayer requires persistence. Jesus is emphatic about that, too. The one who asks must ask repeatedly, like Abraham; the one who seeks must seek untiringly; the one who knocks must knock loudly. And God, like a good father, will answer every prayer, if not with what we want, surely with all we need, the Holy Spirit.
THE RECTORY OFFICE WILL BE CLOSED ON FRIDAYS DURING JULY AND AUGUST
