If Ye Shall Ask

John 14, 14

I.

Our need of divine aid.  We are unable to do the work before us if left to ourselves.  “Without me ye can do nothing” (Jno. 15, 5).  “Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit” (Zech. 4, 6).

II.

Prayer is an opening of the heart to God, throwing off indifference, so essential.  How can God pour his Spirit into a heart closed against him?  “But their heart is far from me” (Matt. 15, 8).

III.

Prayer is a direct, earnest request for God’s help.  “Ask, seek, knock.”  Give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him (Lk. 11, 13).  “And when they had prayed the place was shaken where they were assembled together, and they were filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness” (Acts 4, 31).

IV.

Have we any need of his help, of awakening of souls, of pardon, of guidance of power?  Does anyone about us need to know Jesus as Saviour and Lord?

May God breathe on us the spirit of earnest prayer?  And he prepares us and uses to help reach others that his kingdom may prevail over the forces of evil.
