“Jesus said to his disciples: ‘I tell you most solemnly, anything you ask for from the Father he will grant in my name. Until now you have not asked for anything in my name.’”

John 16:23-28

Today, Jesus invites us to deepen on our relationship with the Father through prayer. The Father knows our needs, and will give us what we need, but do we ask Him, for what we need? Jesus was a man of prayer and would often pray to the Father for guidance in his decisions. He had full confidence in God.

What stops us from asking God for our needs? Do we feel unworthy? Do we hope in the Lord? The Father loves us and will answer our prayers if we can learn to trust and hope in Him. But it is according to His ways, not our own. We are invited to deepen in our relationship with the Father, so that we can experience him as our loving father.
