40 Days of Prayer – Ask

“For everyone who asks receives.”  Is it true?  Jesus revealed to us a universe that operates on the power of the request.  We often become anxious when we know someone will ask something from us, and we find it unpleasant to say no, precisely because a request carries such power.  This is how God designed things.

Day 13 – Will you ask God to act?

Although God is not under any obligation to do so, he has revealed that he, too, will respond to requests.  In fact, he will give us whatever we ask when we make our requests conform to his character—that is, when our requests come after thoughtful consideration of what is loving, good, and representative of God’s kingdom.  This is what it means to ask for things “in Jesus’s name.”
