Matthew 7:7-8 NIV
 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
It sounds so simple but how many of us find it so difficult to ask!! I try so often, to bash on on my own – or, if I am trying to be spiritual, I say I am bashing on alone with God – but actually God has put me in a family and he wants us to ask for help – from him, yes, but also from one another. It is the acceptance of our own need and weakness that opens the floodgates of Gods love and support through his people!
Lord, forgive me when I go my way and forget your call and your people. Help me to have the humility to ask, to seek and to knock.
