Bedtime Stories And Prayers By Enid Blyton-Ask and It Shall Be Given You

Not long ago Mamarazzi was given complimentary copy of this book by Tyndale Publishing House and she have reviewed the book here.

Reading today's Enid Blyton Bedtime Stories & Prayers reminded her of the said book. According to Enid Blyton's book, Jesus disciples  spoke to Jesus and asked Jesus to teach them how to pray.

Jesus told him that he must pray as if he really mean it. Must think what he is saying. Must want what he is asking and must think that he will get it if it is the best thing for him. Must never pray without thinking and did not bother whether God is listening or not.

To illustrate, Jesus told him one of his stories. A man went knocking at his neighbour's home asking to borrow some bread for a house guest. The neighbour told him to go away for his had lock up his house and his kids are asleep. But this man did not give up. He called and called again. And the neighbour then knew that he is earnest in need of the bread and give it to him.

The same goes for God. If we ask and ask, God will see that we are earnest and would give it to us if the thing is good for us. Coz according to Jesus,  a father won't give his son stone to eat if the son is begging for bread.

In Almost Heaven, Billy Allman also prayed earnestly and most of the time he did not get what he pray for. But he did not give up and he continued to believe in God.
