Ask… Seek… Knock.
Jesus had appeared to the disciples and now that Thomas had seen him, he believed it really was Jesus. Jesus said:
“Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
Soon even the disciples wouldn’t see Jesus on earth again. How would they talk to him?
Jesus had already taught them how to pray to God. He’d given them The Lord’s Prayer.
The disciples would be able talk to Jesus by praying, just as we can now.
It’s good to find a quiet place to pray: any time and whatever you’d like to say or chat about. It may be to say sorry, to say ‘thank you’ or to ask please…
Jesus said: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” He is listening. (The verses are in Luke chapter 11 verses 9-10)
How about: Singing God/ Jesus a song? Making up a dance for God?
Making a picture, or play dough models, of things to thank God/Jesus for?
Writing what you’re sorry for in a sand tray. Shake your writing so it disappears? God forgives.
Prayer Thank you, Jesus, that we can talk to you, that you love us and understand us. Please help the people we pray for, who need your care. Amen.
