A Prayerful Response to Matthew 7:7-11

Spirit of God, Giver of Discoveries,

I am reminded of all the times when

you’ve met my inquiry with insight

and my endless searching with interesting findings

of one kind or another.

And God, I am also reminded of

how often I encounter the unexpected--

The times when you offer me that

which I didn’t even know I was seeking.

How wonderful! How puzzling. How curious.

God of unexpected gifts, thank you.

Thank you for keeping my sense of mystery alive.
