Praying Clay & The Potter's Hands

You do not have because you do not ask. So wrote the author of the Letter from James (4:2) in the New Testament. Ask your Heavenly Father, and your needs (not wants) shall be given to you; seek the Father, and you shall find Him; knock on God's front door in confessing (even pleading) prayer, and the Father's door, ear and heart shall be opened to you. It is a proven fact that every one who asks, receives; and he who seeks, find; and to him who knocks, the very God of creation and life shall be opened to you (Matthew's Gospel 7:7,8, as I read it). Pray, as you ought with faith, and not lose heart over the ups and downs of the average day. Valleys can be deep, but God's grace and concern goes far deeper. The Potter's hands never leave the clay until He is finished with it.
