USA GOVERNMENT ASSASSINATED 5-STAR GENERAL PATTON?

RUSSIA INSIDER

Was General Patton Assassinated by the US Government?

During the long Cold War many Russians grew sufficiently disenchanted with the lies and omissions of their own news outlets that they turned to Western radio for a glimpse of the truth.

The growth of the Internet has now provided Americans with a similar opportunity to click on a foreign website and discover the important stories that have somehow escaped the attention of their own leading journalists. Ironically, much of such “alternative media” coverage actually appears in the leading British newspapers, eminently respectable and published in our closest historic ally.

For example, three or four years ago I noticed a link on a prominent libertarian website suggesting that George S. Patton, one of America’s most renowned World War II military commanders, had been murdered by order of the U.S. government. Not being someone much drawn to conspiracy-mongering, the lurid claim seemed totally outlandish, but I decided to click my mouse and harmlessly examine a bit of Internet fringe-lunacy. However, the source turned out to be a lengthy article in Britain’s Sunday Telegraph, one of the world’s leading newspapers, describing a newly published book based on a decade of detailed research and interviews undertaken by an experienced American military affairs writer.

The actor George C. Scott playing General Patton

The book and the article had appeared in 2008 and I had never heard a word about the story in any of my major American newspapers. The description seemed sufficiently factual and detailed that I consulted a couple of prominent academics I know, with backgrounds in history and political science. They had also never encountered the theory, being just as surprised as I was by the material and by the fact that such remarkable revelations had never received any attention in our own country, home of the freest and most scandal-mongering media in the world.

With curiosity getting the better of me, I ordered the book for about $8 from Amazon.com.

Target Patton, written by Robert K. Wilcox and published by Regnery Press, runs over 450 pages, with an extensive bibliography and nearly 700 footnotes. The many years spent by the author on this project are clearly reflected in the contents, which include numerous personal interviews and the careful analysis of an enormous amount of primary and secondary source material. I’ve seldom encountered so detailed and seemingly exhaustive a work of investigatory journalism, quite understandable given the explosive nature of the charges being made. And yet the expose had never reached readers of the American mainstream media.

I personally found the evidence for Patton’s assassination quite persuasive, even overwhelming, and any curious readers can currently order the book for as little as $2.93 plus shipping and judge for themselves.

Wilcox himself had been just as shocked as anyone else when he first encountered the surprising claims, but the initial evidence persuaded him to invest years fully researching the theory before publishing the results. Some of his major findings seem quite telling.

In the months before his death, Patton had become a powerful critic of the American government, its conduct of World War II, and its policy toward the Soviets. He planned to resign from the military after returning to the U.S. and then begin a major public speaking tour against America’s political leadership; as one of our most celebrated war heroes, his denunciations would certainly have had a huge impact. His fatal car accident took place the day before his scheduled departure home, and he had narrowly escaped death twice before under very strange circumstances.

There are extensive personal interviews with the self-confessed government assassin, then attached to America’s OSS intelligence service, the wartime forerunner of the CIA. This operative had a long and substantially documented career in exactly that sort of activity, both during the war itself and for decades afterward, allegedly working internationally on a free-lance basis and “weeding” selected human targets both for the CIA and various other employers.

Towards the end of his life, [former OSS agent] became disgruntled over what he regarded as his ill-treatment by ungrateful U.S. government bureaucrats and also a bit guilt-ridden over having been responsible for the death of one of America’s greatest military heroes, prompting his decision to go public, with his claims backed by a voluminous personal diary. Numerous other interviews with individuals connected with the circumstances of Patton’s death seemed to largely corroborate the theory.

The assassin recounted that OSS Chief William Donovan had ordered the killing on the grounds that Patton had “gone crazy,” becoming a major threat to American national interests. Around this same time, a military counter-intelligence field agent began encountering credible reports of a planned assassination plot against Patton and attempted to warn his superiors, including Donovan; not only were his warnings disregarded, but he was repeatedly threatened, and at one point, even placed under arrest. It seems clear that Donovan’s orders came from his superiors, either in the White House or elsewhere.

The motivation may or may not have ultimately had a foreign origin. Over the last twenty years, scholars such as John Earl Haynes and Harvey Klehr have exhaustively demonstrated that during the 1930s and 1940s a large network of Communist spies had gained enormous influence in the uppermost reaches of the American government. Indeed, Wilcox carefully documents how the OSS itself had been heavily infiltrated at the highest levels by elements of the Soviet NKVD, and that during this particular period, the two intelligence organizations were in an ambiguous quasi-partnership, with Donovan being especially eager to curry political favor with the pro-Soviet elements near the top of the U.S. government.

Meanwhile, Patton, a zealous anti-Communist, had very different views, urging an immediate military attack on the weakened forces of the Soviet Union. It is easy to understand how Stalin and those American leaders in his orbit might have decided that Patton’s physical removal was an absolute priority.

At the time of his death, Patton was the highest ranking U.S. military officer in Europe, and the story naturally became front-page news throughout the world. Several official reports were produced regarding the exact circumstances of the very strange traffic accident responsible, but all of these have completely disappeared from U.S. government files. I find it difficult to imagine a non-sinister explanation for this.

These few paragraphs provide merely the smallest slice of the enormous amount of documentary material and painstaking analysis that Wilcox spent ten years compiling for his outstanding book. Obviously, many questions remain, and absolute proof is impossible seventy years after the event. But from my perspective, the likelihood of an assassination, almost certainly with the active involvement of top American officials, seems overwhelming.

I have also been reliably informed that for many years there has been a widespread belief within the American intelligence community that Patton was eliminated by the U.S. government for political reasons. Such quiet knowledge in those circles is hardly surprising. The alleged government assassin first publicly confessed his guilt in the plot decades ago in front of a journalist at an OSS reunion dinner in DC, while seated at the table of his longtime friend and colleague William Colby, former Director of the CIA. And although the resulting local news stories were completely ignored by the national media, it is hardly surprising that word soon got around within intelligence circles.

Perhaps some experienced scholar with a different perspective could invest time and effort attempting to refute the powerful case set forth by Wilcox, though none apparently has. But suppose that the evidence for this theory is not nearly as overwhelming as it appears, and only sufficient to provide a reasonable possibility that the story is true, perhaps a 25% likelihood. I would argue that if there exists even a slight chance that one of America’s most renowned generals—our top-ranking military officer in post-WWII Europe—was assassinated for political reasons by America’s own government, the scandal would surely rank among the greatest in modern U.S. history.

The book was written by a reputable author and published by a mainstream though conservative-oriented press, but it went unmentioned in America’s major national publications, whether conservative or liberal, nor was any subsequent investigation undertaken. A leading British newspaper reported what American journalists had totally ignored.

It seems likely that if a similar book had been published providing such solidly-documented historical revisionism regarding the sudden death of a top Russian or Chinese general at the close of the Second World War, the story might have easily reached the front pages of the New York Times, and certainly the weekly Book Review section. Perhaps there might even have been considerable media coverage if the victim had been a prominent Guatemalan general, whose name was totally unknown to most of the American public. Yet similar allegations surrounding the demise of one of America’s most famous and popular military leaders of the 1940s have been of no interest to America’s mainstream journalists.

Once again, we must distinguish the two issues. Whether or not I am correct in believing that the case for Patton’s assassination is overwhelming might certainly be disputed. But the fact that the American media has completely failed to report these revelations is absolutely undeniable.

As mentioned, I had originally encountered this fascinating history a few years ago, and at the time had been too preoccupied with other matters to publish a column as I’d intended. But having decided to return to the topic, I quickly reread the book to refresh my memory, and found it even more persuasive than I had the first time round. Eight years after original publication, I still failed to find any coverage in our timorous mainstream newspapers, but given the enormous growth of looser web-based journalism, I wondered what might have appeared elsewhere.

Googling around a bit, I didn’t find a great deal. A couple of times over the years, Wilcox had managed to place short pieces of his own somewhere, including the New York Post in 2010 and in the American Thinker webzine in 2012, with the latter including mention of a possibly important new witness who had finally decided to come forth. But otherwise his astonishing book seems to have been entirely shoved down the memory-hole.

On the other hand, others have recently begun trying to take advantage of his research, while refashioning the narrative into one more likely to find favor within the American establishment and the media it controls.

Most notable was Bill O’Reilly, the FoxNews pundit, who published Killing Patton in 2014, another in his series of popular history best-sellers co-authored by Martin Dugard. The very title itself challenged the official story of an accidental car crash, and I eagerly opened the book, only to be severely disappointed. The presentation seemed thin and padded, with perhaps 10% of the text merely rehashing the analysis provided by Wilcox while the remaining 90% represented a rather conventional historical summary of the Western Front near the end of the Second World War, including heavy coverage of the Nazi concentration camps, and with little of this material having any connection to Patton. The only interesting part of the text seemed based on Wilcox’s original research, and that relationship was heavily disguised by the total absence of any footnotes, with the only indication being a single short sentence near the end citing the Wilcox book as a very helpful summary of “the conspiracy theories.” Not unreasonably, the latter author seemed somewhat irritated at the lack of appropriate notice or credit he received.

O’Reilly’s dumbed-down book sold over a million copies, with a title proclaiming Patton’s assassination. But the resulting media coverage was still rather scanty and largely negative, criticizing the supposed indulgence of “conspiracy theories.” Media Matters summarized the reaction as “Historians Rip O’Reilly’s New Patton Book,” and given the near-total lack of any documentation provided by O’Reilly, much of that criticism may not have been unreasonable. Thus, the media totally ignored a heavily documented and persuasive book, while attacking and ridiculing a weak one on the same subject, with this dual approach constituting an effective means of obscuring the truth.

America’s opinion leaders tend to rely upon our most elite national newspapers for their knowledge of the world, and the only coverage I found in these of O’Reilly’s best-seller was a rather odd opinion piece by Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen. Cohen seemed rather uninterested in the assassination question one way or another, but harshly condemned O’Reilly for devoting insufficient pages to discussing Patton’s alleged anti-Semitism. Indeed, he almost implied that some of the remarks later found in Patton’s private diaries were sufficiently nasty toward Jews that perhaps no American should even care whether our highest ranking general in Europe had been killed by his own government or anyone else. The mentality of our mainstream media these days is very strange indeed, and we live in the world it creates for us.

Most recently, the success of the O’Reilly book and our revived Cold War with Russia may have led to production of a new documentary making the case for Patton’s assassination, but possibly reconstructing the facts with a distorted twist. Wilcox’s original research had demonstrated that top American leaders organized Patton’s assassination, though probably in conjunction with the Soviets. O’Reilly provided some of those facts in his book, but his media interviews airbrushed out the American role, simply declaring that “Stalin killed Patton.” And based on news reports, I wonder if this new documentary, apparently made without Wilcox’s involvement, will similarly ignore the massive evidence of direct U.S. government involvement, while perhaps attempting to fix the blame solely upon the nefarious Russians.

Finally, this important historical incident provides a useful means of evaluating the credibility of certain widely-used resources. For years I’ve emphasized to people that Wikipedia is absolutely worthless as a source of reliable information on any relatively “controversial” topic. Given Patton’s enormous historical stature, it is hardly surprising that his Wikipedia entry is exceptionally long and detailed, running over 15,000 words, with nearly 300 references and footnotes. But this exhaustive exposition contains not the slightest suggestion of any suspicious aspects to his death. “Wiki-Pravda” indeed.

THE TOWERING INFERNO - LATEST 19/06/17   by S.N.Strutt

IT TURNS OUT THAT AS MANY AS 457 DEATHS MIGHT HAVE TRAGICALLY OCCURED AT THE GRENFELL TOWER! ALL BEING COVERED UP BY THE AUTHORITIES:-< http://halturnershow.com/index.php/news/world-news/628-claim-457-dead-in-london-apartment-fire-government-covering-up-death-toll >

ADDED 19/06/17 Ask yourselves this question: How could so many factors be so wrong?

In a building where the stairway is blocked, the fire-alarm and springlers didn't work. It was 1 am in the morning. New inflammable cladding had just been added to the building on the outside, for appearance sake, to those having to look at the building from far away, which made it burn ferociously on the outer surface, and making it impossible to get safely out of the window, even if you wanted to. A fridge is blamed as a cause of the accident starting on the 3rd floor!?

 Something simply does not add up!

There were around a max of 400 people in the building, and quite honestly, they simply didn't have a chance, to get out of the building, with all the conditions mentioned even by the mainstream press. I wouldn't be surprised that in the future some time it is revealed that perhaps over 100 people actually died, which will be probably covered up for convenience!

We are told, that the fire was started by a refigorator in an apartment on the 3rd floor!? Honestly for those who know about electrics, since when, could a refigerator explode and cause a fire? NEVER! A gas boiler perhaps, but never a fridge, as its design does not allow for a serious explosion, capable of causing a massive fire, which then ripped right through the 24 story building in around 5 minutes?!

Something is very fishy here. [Added 19.06.17: Speculation: Here is one way a fridge could explode? If that fridge had previously been packed with incendary devices, and  triggered by remote control, by someone, but whom? (Shades of 9/11?)THE TRUTH BEHIND 9/11:- http://www.outofthebottomlesspit.co.uk/420916542

 

 

Who knew that the new cladding around the building was also inflammable? A perfect set-up for an instant fire! It is almost unbelievable that so many factors were all wrong at the same time?] Authorities were warned many times about the dangers by the residents themselves; and that the building was both a fire and death trap, and yet nothing was done to protect those poor innocent unfortunates, who lived there!

THE TOWERING INFERNO IN LONDON  -By S.N.Strutt (Author of this website) UPDATED (18/06/17)

150 now feared dead-THE DAILY RECORD

Summary by S.N.Strutt. 16/06/17  TIME: 19.00

I was just reading a couple of newspapers right this minute, and was surprised to read the HEADLINES: 100+ FEARED DEAD. Another newspaper claims it is more like 150 persons burned alive!

One witness, an Australian, stated that they saw 25 people die right in front of them on the top three floors. Probably seen from a neighbouring high tower. It looks like the government is in the dock about this, because the Tories recently passed a law not to force landlords to improve their tenants apartment conditions in favour of more profit, and showing  zero concern for the actual well-being of the tenants.

ADDED 20.30 16.06.17

I just watched the BBC, who now admitted that at least 70 people have died in the FIERY TOWER OF LONDON disaster!

An ambassador from an African country, was interviewed by the BBC, stating that there were 8 people missing from his country, and that 5 lived together in one apartment on the 21st floor.

OK, we all know  that often the poor have large families and are willing to live in cramped conditions, out of bare necessity.

We have been told that the building has 24 floors, with a max of 5-7 apartments/floor= 150-200 Apartments. If every apartment had only 1-2 people then possibly there were not more than a max of 300-400 people in the building, which is the official max number of people, that could possibly, have be in the building at the time of the disaster. However, if many families, had 5 or more persons living in their apartments, which no know seems to know anything about; then a maximum of around 1000 persons could have been in the building, though highly unlikely!

There have also been big protests in London today in KENSINGTON (West London) where the BURNED OUT apartment TOWER block is, and also in central London.

The government is accused of not having done anything to help, or at least not reacting fast enough, when it could have made a great difference.  It has been volunteers from the public itself,and emergency services that has brought most of the help to the victims of the disaster, while the council and government officials, according to the demonstrators, apparently have not gotten involved with the victims on a personal level.

The queen was there today, and also prince William, to encourage the victims of the Tower.

One person talking to the BBC reporter right now (8 PM) screamed that they saw scores of body bags, and they know that many more people died than is being told to the public; and thus they are demonstrating for answers, as to:WHY THE DISASTER? & WHO WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE?

The DEMONSTRATORS were also insisting on immediate new housing, for all the survivors of the disaster within weeks.

The Prime minister promised £5 million to help with the survivors needs, which sounds like a very low amount of money, when you consider that one person having a very serious car accident can sue and claim £1 million/case?

A very sad situation indeed! I don't think those poor souls had a chance in that fiery tower building!

Lets pray and hope that the DEATH TOLL does not rise into the hundreds as many of us now suspect!

16/06/17  TIME 10 a.m. 

I am like Jonney come lately on this one, as I was away, abroad, at a beautiful wedding, and came back to the UK, only to be met the very next morning with this terrible tragedy concerning the Grenfell Tower in London. As it is early days, I will not speculate too much yet, on what really happened in this tragedy, although many people already suspect something is out of place, and things simply don't add up, including my neighbour.

It all comes too soon, after the shootings and knifings on London Bridge, as well as the bombing in Manchester!?

The mainstrean media are very tightly downplaying the number of deaths, and have been from day one.

 

PLEASE PRAY FOR ALL THOSE WHO LOST THEIR LIVES, AND FOR THEIR LOVED ONES, WHO ARE NOW SUFFERING BECAUSE OF THIS TERRIBLE TRAGEDY OF CORPORATE GREED & NEGLIGENCE, WHETHER ACCIDENTAL OR....?!

Lets just wait and see...Below the video, is an excellent article on PRAYER by ACTIVATED...

 

 

Making the Connection

(SOURCE:-A Get Activated! Book) 16/06/17)

God’s idea of prayer is not a ritual, but loving and lively communication between the best of friends.

But sad to say, most people think they can’t talk to God like that. Some think they’re not religious enough, not righteous enough, or not spiritual enough. Some think He’s too big-too far above them. Some think He’s too busy to be concerned about them and their problems, which they think must seem awfully petty to Him. Some feel unworthy, not good enough. Some feel guilty or ashamed about things they’ve done. Some are even afraid of Him. If only they understood how differently God sees it!

God wants to have a personal relationship with each of us, and He wants it to be the deepest, most meaningful, most fulfilling and rewarding, most natural part of our lives. Now that’s not to say He wants to take away from the other relationships and activities that we enjoy and consider important. To the contrary-He wants to be a part of all that. He wants to make our day-to-day living easier, He wants to give the things we experience greater meaning, and He wants to enjoy them with us. In a word, He wants to make our lives better. He wants to add a wonderful new dimension to all that we do-the dimension of His loving presence.

How do we establish such a relationship, especially when we feel small and unspiritual and unworthy? How do we make that connection? Simple: through His Son, Jesus!

None of us can really grasp how great and wonderful God our Father is, because He and His Spirit are greater than the whole universe. He’s so beyond our comprehension that He had to send us Someone who could show us His love, Someone we could experience, Someone who could bring God down to the level of our limited human understanding. So He sent His Son, Jesus.

Jesus lived for thirty-three years on Earth in human form and experienced the joy and sorrows that we as humans experience.1 Jesus has been here, so He can understand us and be the link between us and God.2

We can get personal with Jesus. He even told us to ask Him into our hearts: "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me."3 He’s the One we can have direct, personal contact with. He is the One we can approach God through.

If you have prayed to receive Jesus as your Savior, you already have that connection. If not, you can make it right now by sincerely praying a simple prayer like the following:

Dear Jesus, I believe You are the Son of God and that You died for me. I need Your love to cleanse me from my mistakes and wrongdoing. I now open the door of my heart and ask You to please come into my life and give me Your free gift of eternal life. Amen.

 

Prayer Is Communication

Like any deep and lasting friendship, your relationship with Jesus will be strengthened by
frequent honest, open communication. That’s really what prayer is all about: communicating heart-to-heart with the Lord.

But just how do you communicate with the Lord? Believe it or not, it’s quite simple.

To get started, try sitting down in a quiet spot and picture Jesus there next to you. Then talk to Him just like you would to a good friend. You can talk to Him aloud or in your mind. The exact words you say aren’t what matter-just tell Him what’s on your heart.

Actually, you can pray anywhere, at anytime. You don’t have to be either sitting or standing. You don’t have to be in a church, a religious building, or any special place. Prayer connects your heart with God’s heart, regardless of your surroundings.

Many people associate prayer with asking God for things. But that’s only a part of prayer. Of course He wants you to tell Him your needs, but He also wants you to just spend time with Him telling Him about how things are going in your life. Tell the Lord how much you love Him and how thankful you are for all the good things He sends your way. Tell Him all about your dreams and desires, problems and questions, and He will give you strength, inspiration, reassurance and answers you need.

Jesus is at your beck and call-just a prayer away-and He’s always happy to lend an ear and a helping hand. He’s interested in you and what you’re going through, and He’s happy to hear and answer your requests.

But there’s more to prayer than that.

Jesus also wants to communicate with you, to talk to you. He wants to give you personal words of love and encouragement, and He wants to help you with your problems. He has all the answers, but how can He give them to you if you don’t listen? You need to learn to recognize His voice when He speaks to your spirit and puts thoughts in your mind.

Jesus will also speak to you through His written Word, the Bible, but to get the most out of it you need to pray and listen to Him as you read. Then He can explain how what you’re reading applies to you and today’s world. He will fill in gaps and provide added detail to the often rather general answers in His Word. But again, the key is listening.

Whether it’s your turn to listen or your turn to talk, you can communicate with the Lord at the speed of thought! It’s not like communicating by letter, where you write to someone via the postal system and then have to wait days or weeks to receive their reply.-Or even like sending e-mail via the Internet, where you can get an answer back from the other side of the world in minutes. Your prayers actually reach His ear before they leave your mouth,1 and you can get immediate answers. He may not always be able to give you a complete answer or bring about the final result you desire right away, but at the least He will tell you that He’s heard your prayer and He’s working on it. That assurance alone can give you peace of mind and help problems that seem like mountains melt away. And as you later bring the matter again in prayer before Him, He will continue to work on your behalf and show you what you can do to help work His will in the matter and bring it to a happy, fruitful conclusion.2

 

How Prayer Benefits You

There are so many benefits to spending time with the Lord that you really can’t afford not to! He can help you solve every problem, answer your every question, heal all your heartaches, comfort you when you’re sorrowful, give you joy, and bring you closer to Heaven. The list is endless.

Prayer changes things! It’s one means by which God gives His children what they need or want, as long as it’s good for them and others. "Whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive."1

You will be made stronger in spirit. Time spent in quiet reflection and listening builds inner strength that will get you through life’s toughest times. "In the day when I cried out, You answered me, and made me bold with strength in my soul." 2

You will find rest and renewal when your spirit is sagging and your mind is troubled. "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."1

You will have a more positive outlook on life, because you will be better able to see things through the eyes of faith. Once you have committed a matter to God in prayer, you can then have the assurance that He will take care of it in accordance with His will. That helps you fight against worry and view things more optimistically. "We know that all things work together for good to those who love God."2 "We walk by faith, not by sight."3

You will find comfort in times of sadness and grief, reassurance when you’re down and out, and courage to go on when you think you can’t. Jesus will help you see your troubles in proper perspective, as He sees them, and give you peace of mind. "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds."4 "In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul."5

As you receive and apply the things the Lord shows you, you will become wiser. "If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him."6

Jesus will guide you through the maze of life. He will help you know what to do when you face problems and tough decisions. He has promised to instruct you, establish your thoughts, and guide your steps. "In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths."7 "Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, ‘This is the way, walk in it,’ whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left."1

He will inspire you with good ideas. "Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know."2

Jesus will prevent some problems from happening by warning you in advance, and give you solutions to others. "Whoever listens to Me will dwell safely, and will be secure, without fear of evil."3

You can be healed physically. "The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up."4

You can be forgiven for wrongdoing. "I acknowledged my sin to You, and my iniquity I have not hidden. I said, ‘I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,’ and You forgave the iniquity of my sin."5

You will gain insight into the natural world as well as the spiritual realm. "As it is written: ‘Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him. But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.’"6

Prayer draws on the power of God, so you will be able to accomplish more, and do so more easily. "He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength. … Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint."7

You will have greater peace of mind. "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."1

You can claim God’s supply of your material needs. "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened."2

Jesus will open to you the treasures of His Word if you will pray, as King David did: "Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from Your law."3

You can get the Lord’s help even when you don’t know what to ask for. "The Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered."4
