May 22 2022 The Day Has Come to Pray to the Father

In that day you will ask nothing of

Me. Truly, truly, I say to you, whatever you ask of the Father in

My name, He will give it to you. Until now you have asked nothing

in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.

John 16:23–24

“In that day,” Jesus told the disciples in the

Upper Room, “whatever you ask of the Father in My name, He will give

it to you.” They could not understand, hearing Him before Easter and

Pentecost. But we know now that the day has arrived, thanks to His death

and resurrection, when our heavenly Father’s ears are open to our

every prayer. In this our day, we can anticipate by faith seeing Him

and Jesus, the Lamb, in the perfect Jerusalem, as John writes in the

reading from Revelation. Hearing the good news, Lydia, in the Reading

from Acts, asked if the disciples deemed her worthy for Baptism.

Indeed, with the gift of faith by the Holy Spirit, Christ’s

worthiness and her sins had been exchanged on the cross. She provided

a home for Paul and Luke, and God had an eternal Jerusalem awaiting

her entry. What Easter joy!
