Receive What You Ask For
I tell you the truth, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.
John 16:23, niv
Jesus said we are to ask if we want to receive.
My mother encouraged me as a little girl to pray specifically. She bought me a small white leather notebook, and in it I carefully recorded my requests. Then, at her instruction, I left a blank line under each one so I could record the date of the answer. In the front of the little book, she penned these words:
Thou art coming to a King,
Large petitions with thee bring,
For His grace and power are such,
None can ever ask too much!
So feel free to ask! But leave a blank space under your request so you can record the answer! Because Jesus said if we ask we will receive.
