Praying from Matthew 7:10 relating to Provision, Trust, Deception
Dear Lord, we come before you today with humble hearts, seeking your guidance and wisdom. We know that you are a loving and compassionate God who always provides for our needs. We ask that you grant us the discernment to recognize the difference between good and evil, and the courage to choose what is right. Help us to trust in your goodness and to have faith that you will never give us a serpent when we ask for a fish. May we always seek your will and follow your ways, knowing that you have our best interests at heart. We pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Verse: Or if he asks for a fish, who will give him a serpent?
This is a Command. The verse is a rhetorical question posed by Jesus in Matthew 7:10, emphasizing the importance of giving good gifts to others. The implied command is to give good gifts to those who ask, rather than giving them something harmful or useless.
