Matthew 7:7–8 are the seventh and eighth verses of the seventh chapter of the Gospel of Matthew in the New Testament and is part of the Sermon on the Mount. These verses begin an important metaphor generally believed to be about prayer.

 “Ask, and it will be given you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and it will be opened for you. For everyone who asks receives. He who seeks finds. To him who knocks it will be opened.”

I do believe this, that by asking I will receive, by seeking I will find, and by knocking doors will be opened. Maybe not instantly, but in the long run it has always worked over the 86 years of my life!
