What is our relationship with God when it comes to prayer? How can we be bold and brazen in this relationship, trusting in who God is? Initially this seems as though we should to ask God for whatever it is our hearts desire, persistently knocking at God's door. Is this really how prayer works? God will deliver something to us, if only to get us to pipe down? Jesus speaks about asking and seeking and knocking, which is an idiom that refers to the study of Torah and how one should approach the text. If we are faithful to pursue the text like this, then we will better understand what it means to ask God for good things.
