I have loved the “Little House” books since I discovered them in third grade. My mother picked up the first one that I brought home from the school library, read it, and she was hooked too. Then, years later, the series went on television and we watched them faithfully. Even now, I love to watch the reruns on Hallmark.
“Jesus uses the words ask, seek, and knock in the present active imperative tense. That means “ask and keep on asking; seek and keep on seeking; knock and keep on knocking.” In the Scriptures, prayer is compared to incense, which implies an unbroken stream that flows from us to heaven. Are you providing a continuous fragrance to the Lord with your prayers?”
