Weekly Truth

Open Your Bible

Matthew 7:7-11

Scripture is God-breathed and true. When we memorize it, we carry the good news of Jesus with us wherever we go. 

Over the course of this Study Book, we will work to memorize our key passage for this reading plan, Matthew 7:7–11. This week, let’s memorize verses 7–8, where Jesus encourages us to ask for what we need in prayer.

Ask, and it will be given to you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. Who among you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask him.”
—Matthew 7:7–11

    God is a good good Father. He knows me better than I know myself. He knows what I need. He knows how to provide. Ask and God will give. He is giving and he is caring. God gives the best gifts of all!

  3. Jayla Matoorah says:

    Seek and you will find

    Ask and you shall receive ❤️

  5. Danielle Patrick says:

    Todays verses are great encouragement to stay persistent in seeking answers and resolution, even when we feel stuck. Life’s rejection is Gods redirection!!

  6. Juli Futrell says:

    SRT Bible studies are the first Bible studies I have done that carve out time for memorizing Scripture! I memorize so many other things, and I am SO thankful that, now, Scripture is one of them!

  7. Lauren Hicks says:

    Thank you God that you are a man of your word!

  9. Marcey KIEBERT says:

    I love this and memorizing God’s word. That I can ask and I will receive but I have found the more I read and seek God the more my will turns to His will! So I pray for that his will is in my life and guidance is from Him alone

    @Nitz praying for you! Please know you’re not alone. In a hard season of life for me currently I too feel what you have described. Please know this won’t last and that you are loved. Praying for all you She’s tonight and that it’s a great week!

    Meghan Fox I love this song! I first heard it while going through IVF last year and it really spoke to me. God can do anything ! Is anything too hard for God? Traci Gendron and Martha Hix, still praying for you. May the God of all comfort comfort you. Nitz, I pray for you as well, it is inspiring to see you praising God in the middle of the pain you are describing. God bless you

  21. Susan says:

    Nitz, The Lord is near to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Ps 34:18

  22. Hannah Storay says:

    It warms my heart that this passage is the center passage for this study. Just a few weeks ago I came across it and printed it out to tape to my desk at work. Just God’s way of foreshadowing the importance of this passage, and that I still need to read it and feel every word of it. ❤️

  23. Ruby Hunter says:


  24. Nitz . says:

    Lord, I’m brokenhearted, I’m dissappointed. I don’t understand. Like Job I curse the day I was born. But here I am, I worship with the angels and I cry holy, holy are you Lord God almight heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hossanna in the highest, Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord. Amen, Amen and Amen

  25. Mercy says:

    @Traci: thinking of you today, 13/11. I remembered last year, you said it happened on a Saturday. May the Lord comfort and strengthen you as He holds your hand to walk through the process.
    @Michelle Patire: hope your event today went well, and your leg injury is fully recovered.
    @Meghan Fox: I loved the lyrics you posted. Thank you for sharing.
    @Gwineth52: wondering where you are on your trip. Miss your checking-in every now and then. Praying for safe travels and lots of joy wherever you might be.
    I hope you all have a wonderful blessed Sunday & a great new week ahead, dear lovely wonderful she’s.

  26. Erica Chiarelli says:

    @Meghan Fox love that song!!!!

  27. Rhonda J. says:

    Oh @Lexi B, that sounds like a FUN “business!” But- I too had a “fun” job opening my own fitness studio and learned quickly that it was a lot, a lot more to it being the owner of a business, even though the joy of what your doing is just that! So prayers for you as you pass the one-year mark, and many more years to come! I was newly divorced when I opened my business and had a 4-year-old. It was scary, yet I knew God had opened the exact doors that I needed to follow through! For many years I left my christian music on the radio and made it known God had blessed my business!! It’s amazing how you can touch people for God in all areas of your life if willing!! Love ya!

    We are doing the study on Hearing God at church! So good! Today it was on sitting with Him as a friend and conversing! I really need work on the hearing! I love to praise and worship God, and pray without ceasing throughout my day…but listening-not so good!! (Maybe you realize this with all my posts of talking???!)- Don’t answer that! But I am setting a timer after my bike ride and before my worship to block my mind of all things and hear God. The first day I heard the word “discipline.” So discipline it is! Thank you God Almighty, my heavenly Father, my friend- for letting me sit at your feet, by your side, or in your lap. I lay down my life for you, and will praise you for the rest of my days! Hallejuhah!

    @Megan Fox- I too love the song by Brandon Lake, basically all songs by him! So neat that you got to see him, my friend just saw him in Chicago a week or so ago!

    and @Mari, we love you too so much!

    @JLJ- good word as always!

    @She’s–Have a great Sunday, love you all! (Special prayers for you @Traci and @Martha

  28. Lexi B says:

    Theresa: I loved what you said about prayer- “He will sort out the answering part, I don’t need to worry about it. My job is to come.” I am like you, I struggle to bring the little things to God, forgetting He wants me to come to him for all things.

    I am so thankful- yesterday marked my one year anniversary of my first business client. I started out with one, backpacking in the snow for 2 days and it was amazing. Yesterday I took a group of 15- we went ocean kayaking with 12 and 3 joined us later for dinner and a light show. To see where I started and to see where God has brought me with this business; I feel so blessed. It has been quite a journey and I love it; the good and the hard. Thank you God for answered prayers! Happy Sunday She’s!

  29. Caroline Barrett says:

    These are things we can do ways. Ask questions about God, seek the answers, knock on the door of forgiveness and mercy. God is good all the time. Amen.

  30. Mari says:

    GOOD morning and Happy Sunday sweet sisters! I am filled with JOY to read the comments. I love our sweet community of BEAUTIFUL sisters gathered here from all over the WORLD to worship the ONE true GOD and unite as sisters in one accord. I love how we all gather here to lift one another up in prayer. No prayer is too small or to big for our God! I love you all so much! Have a wonderful Sunday with your families. And remember WE are not alone.

    We’ve seen cancer disappear
    We’ve seen broken bodies healed
    Don’t you tell me He can’t do it
    Don’t you tell me He can’t do it
    We’ve seen real life resurrection
    We’ve seen mental health restored
    Don’t you tell me He can’t do it
    Don’t you tell me He can’t do it
    We’ve seen families reunited
    We’ve seen prodigals return
    Don’t you tell me He can’t do it
    Don’t you tell me He can’t do it
    We’ve seen troubled souls delivered
    We’ve seen addicts finally freed
    Don’t you tell me He can’t do it
    Don’t you tell me He can’t do it
    We’ll see cities in revival
    Salvation flood the streets
    Don’t you tell me He can’t do it
    Don’t you tell me He can’t do it
    We’ll see glory fill the nations
    Like the world has never seen
    Don’t you tell me He can’t do it
    ‘Cause I know that He can

  33. Meghan Fox says:

    Our church is doing a series on worship right now and I am loving it. Today, we spent about 80% of the service in worship and boy did I need it! We sang one of my favorite songs which I just heard Brandon Lake sing at his concert last week- Too Good to Not Believe. Tears sprang to my eyes as we sang the verses about families and prodigals. I sing this over all of you today; no matter what you’re going through, our God is with us and He does miracles every day.

  34. Susan Lincks says:

    God is great all the time. All the time, God is great!!

  35. Jennifer Loves Jesus says:

    “The verbs ask, seek, and knock are present progressives: “be asking,” “be seeking,” “be knocking.” Note the synergy: our effort is commanded, but never apart from the immediate help of God. We ask in prayer; seek by learning God’s truth; and knock by doing God’s will.” (OSB) Father God, I am asking, I am seeking, I am knocking… Open the door of your will to my heart. I lift up the prayers of all the hearts seeking you. Hear us o Lord. Incline your ear and remind us that you hear us. Comfort the hearts that are stricken, rejoice with the hearts that are joyful. Be with us today and give us the strength and perseverance that we need. Have mercy on us. Both now and forever, unto ages of ages amen. Maranatha.

  36. Jo says:

    Psalm 63v1 “O God You are my God; earnestly I seek You; my soul thirsts for You”.
    To sit at His feet, to rest in His presence, with no agenda but to be in His will.
    May the joy of the Lord be your strength, dear sisters ❤️

  37. Sundayschoolteacher says:

    Thank you God, who is our Father, for loving us and allowing us to bring our requests and praise to You. You are greater than my human mind can conceive but You love me all the more. Help me to stay in Your word so I can hear You speak to me. Happy Sunday She’s! May we worship God with all of our heart and mind today.

  38. Hannah Smith says:

    “All who ask receive” praying this morning for Holy Spirit to open my eyes to be more aware of the receiving, even if – especially if – God gives in a way I didn’t expect.

  39. Aimee D-R says:


  40. Susan says:

    Thank you Kelly (NEO).

  41. Theresa says:

    I often hold back my requests from God, feeling like what I want or need is so insignificant and that God has much bigger things to worry about. What was impressed upon my heart this morning is that God wants me to bring it all before him. The big and the small. He is big enough to care about the vast problems the world is facing AND my requests for the little things. He will sort out the answering part, I don’t need to worry about it. My job is to come.

  42. Mindy Shiffert says:


  43. Kelly (NEO) says:
