Great Prayer Promises

In Zechariah chapter 10 verse 1, we are reminded to “ask the Lord for rain in the time of Latter rain [for]…He will give showers of rain, grasses in the field for everyone”.  This promise for abundant answer to prayer symbolized by the late growing season rains that helped to bring in bumper crops is reminiscent of Matt 7:7-8 and Jesus’ reminder to us of asking, seeking and knocking.  Also a nice allusion to Paul’s reminder that God gives “exceedingly and abundantly” (Ephesians 3:20-21).
