إِسأَلوا تُعطَوا، أُطلُبوا تَجِدوا، إِقرَعوا يُفتَح لَكُم. لِأَنَّ كُلَّ مَن يَسأَلُ يَنال، وَمَن يَطلُبُ يَجِد، وَمَن يَقرَعُ يُفتَحُ لَهُ
إنجيل القدّيس لوقا11/من05حتى13/:”في ذَلِكَ ٱلزَّمان، قالَ يَسوعُ لِتَلاميذِهِ: «مَن مِنكُم يَكونُ لَهُ صَديقٌ فَيَمضي إِلَيهِ عِندَ نِصفِ ٱللَّيل، وَيَقولُ لَهُ: يا أَخي، أَقرِضني ثَلاثَةَ أَرغِفَة. فَقَد قَدِمَ عَلَيَّ صَديقٌ مِن سَفَر، وَلَيسَ عِندي ما أُقَدِّمُ لَهُ. فَيُجيبُ ذاكَ مِنَ ٱلدّاخِل: لا تُزعِجني، فَٱلبابُ مُقفَلٌ وَأَولادي مَعي في ٱلفِراش. فَلا يُمكِنُني أَن أَقومَ فَأُعطِيَكَ. أَقولُ لَكُم: وَإِن لَم يَقُم وَيُعطِهِ لِكَونِهِ صَديقَهُ، فَإِنَّهُ يَنهَضُ لِلَجاجَتِهِ، وَيُعطيهِ كُلَّ ما يَحتاجُ إِلَيه. وَإِنّي أَقولُ لَكُم: «إِسأَلوا تُعطَوا، أُطلُبوا تَجِدوا، إِقرَعوا يُفتَح لَكُم. لِأَنَّ كُلَّ مَن يَسأَلُ يَنال، وَمَن يَطلُبُ يَجِد، وَمَن يَقرَعُ يُفتَحُ لَهُ. فَأَيُّ أَبٍ مِنكُم إِذا سَأَلَهُ ٱبنُهُ سَمَكَةً أَعطاهُ بَدَلَ ٱلسَّمَكَةِ حَيَّة؟ أَو سَأَلَهُ بَيضَةً أَعطاهُ عَقرَبًا؟ فَإِذا كُنتُم أَنتُمُ ٱلأَشرارَ تَعرِفونَ أَن تُعطوا ٱلعَطايا ٱلصّالِحَةَ أَبناءَكُم، فَما أَولى أَباكُمُ ٱلسَّماوِيّ، بِأَن يَهَبَ ٱلرّوحَ ٱلقُدُسَ لِلَّذينَ يَسأَلونَهُ!»

Ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you
Saint Luke 11/05-13/:”Jesus said to his disciples: “Suppose one of you has a friend to whom he goes at midnight and says, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread, for a friend of mine has arrived at my house from a journey and I have nothing to offer him,’ and he says in reply from within, ‘Do not bother me; the door has already been locked and my children and I are already in bed. I cannot get up to give you anything.’ I tell you, if he does not get up to give him the loaves because of their friendship, he will get up to give him whatever he needs because of his persistence. And I tell you, ask and you will receive; 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. What father among you would hand his son a snake when he asks for a fish? Or hand him a scorpion when he asks for an egg? If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?”
