"Everyone who asks receives..."


The word of God shows us the value of the prayer of supplication. Queen Esther prayed earnestly for her people and God came to her assistance. Her prayer was likewise a prayer of adoration and praise.The Responsorial Psalm also draws our attention to the importance of thanksgiving. In the Gospel Jesus himself encourages us to trust in him: "Ask and it will be given to you."
