On the parable … (Luke 11:5–9)
Continuing the idea of one of my old hymns on Sundays:
If to a friend at midnight
you went to ask for bread –
‘Another friend has come to stay,
and I’ve no food,’ you said.
Although a friend, he would not
get out of bed, unless
he knew you had an urgent need –
for help he heard you press.
And will not God, the Father,
if he’s your Friend indeed,
be pleased to hear you earnestly
pray for the help you need?

“So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. …" (Luke 11:9)
