Ask and Receive

For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. ~ Matthew 7:8 New International Version (NIV)

It’s a familiar verse.
Probably you could quote it,
though perhaps with arcane ye’s.
What is it we’re to ask for?
What door allows us access?
It’s clear all people may petition.
Is it not also clear we’re not limited
to only once? We need only petition,
and we can expect to be treated
as a loving father would respond.
but Oh! how much more capable
is this Father of giving abundantly!
