Jesus is frying up more fish

You fathers – if your children ask for a fish, do you give them a snake instead? If sinners know how to give good gifts to their children, how much more will your heavenly father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him? Luke 11:13

In concluding His teaching on prayer Jesus points out that God is our Father and has good gifts for us. Prayer isn’t begging, badgering, or negotiation. Prayer is another opportunity for us to experience trust, dependence, love and grace. Jesus redirects attention toward the love and wisdom of the Holy Spirit rather than focusing on our prayer requests or methods.

Lord, I surrender the prayer list and trust You to make a great fish fry out of it.
