Bible Commentary

Matthew 7:8 is a famous Bible verse in the New Testament where Jesus is teaching us about the power of prayer.

We as humans are constantly looking for what we think will fulfill us—the right job, the right spouse, a bigger salary. And when we have attained those things, then we want something else.

At some point, you may have finally decided to look up to God and pray. He is the only One Who won’t let us down, and the only One Who can fulfill us completely.

You may not see an immediate answer to your prayer, but it says in the Bible that He answers prayer, whether you see it or not.

Here is an important question and the key. Do you believe it?


If you don’t really believe He will answer you, then you won’t be looking for the answer. If you don’t expect an answer, you may miss it when it comes.

Jesus said that everyone who asks receives. Everyone means you. There is power in prayer.

Unlocking the Truth – Power of Prayer

In John 15:7, Jesus said, “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”

Whatever we wish! Wow, that almost sounds too good to be true, but have you tried praying to God, believing for an answer?

Don’t miss the first part of John 15:7, where He said “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you…” If we read the Bible regularly, by default we are closer to God than those who don’t, because our faith is stronger.


When you are closer to God, it is easier to believe Him. And because you know Him better, you can more easily recognize His answers to your prayers.

It becomes a dialogue between you and God, like a relationship, and a rich and satisfying one. As you get to know Him better, you will start seeing Him and the answers to your prayers better.

There is nothing more exciting and satisfying than seeing God show up through your spouse, through your loved ones, and in your circumstances. He reveals Himself to those who know Him.


When you abide in His Word, the Bible, regularly and “ask” or pray regularly, you will begin to recognize Him and the answers to your prayers.

Act on the Bible verse of Matthew 7:8. Ask and receive. Seek and find. Knock and the door will be opened.

Simply believing the Bible verse of Matthew 7:8 will revolutionize your life and your prayers. Believe in the power of prayer, and receive.
