Pray Like a Child
Matthew 18:1-5; At that time the disciples came to Jesus saying, “who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of the and said, “Assuredly I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me.”
I have heard and watch the prayers of a child and the faith in which he freely asks anything of Jesus. I have watched and witnessed Jesus quickly answer and give far more to that child than what he asked for.
Micah’s rainbow: Micah is my grandson who is one of Jesus’ most favorite little ones. Micah has no problem asking Jesus, or my wife for anything. Jesus, because of Micah’s faith, as I have witnessed it, gives Micah anything he asks for. Example #1: Micah was six years of age riding in the car with his father when he asked, “Dad do you think Jesus will make me a rainbow?”
Not knowing what Micah would ask next His father said yes. Micah then asked, “Dad will you pray with me for Jesus to make me a rainbow?”
His dad was a bit lost for words did not wish for Micah to be disappointed for there was not one cloud in the sky. His dad may have uttered something like not now I,m driving. I do not know if the Holy Spirit or his own guilt made him to decide to stop the car and pray with Micah, but he did. They prayed and got back on the road, they had only gone a short distance and all of a sudden there was clouds and this perfect rainbow. No big deal right we live in Florida, we get a lot of rain and rainbows. Still Micah asked, and Jesus answered,
Micah got his rainbow!
The wonderful thing about talking to God there is no dead zones and you never have ask, “Can you hear me now?”
Isaiah.7:11 “Ask a sign for yourself from the LORD your God; ask it in the depth or on the height above.”
Yes I know I have taken this verse out of context, but as for my grandson he knew nothing about context, He just wanted to ask Jesus for something special that day. His father was so amazed by the sight of the rainbow he stopped and took the above picture. I love the Verizon bill-broad that just happens be in the picture.
