"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened." Matthew 7:7-8
"You do not have, because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures."
"If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!" Mathew 7:11
Let us be a people who has the faith to ask, who has the desire to receive, and when we do ask, have the right motives. (When in doubt, ask the Lord and share your prayers with others so they can discern with you if you are praying with right motives!)
