You Don’t Need To Ask Him

More often than not, people think the purpose
for prayer is asking God for things. Prayer
isn’t about asking God for things. It’s just that the word,
“Prayer” is a generic word, but many only look at one
of its synonyms, which is to ask or make requests;
but there’s more to prayer than making requests and
entreaties. The higher purposes of prayer have nothing
to do with asking for things.
Due to the misconception of the purposes of
prayer, when some Christians read our opening
scripture above, the next thing that comes to their
minds is making requests of God. But that scripture
needs to be well understood. Jesus didn’t say, “What
things soever ye ask for, when ye pray…”; He said,
“What things soever ye desire, when ye pray….” He
didn’t say you should ask!
This means, when you’re praying, whether in
praise or in worship, and you have a desire, just believe
that that desire has been granted you. You don’t need
to ask Him! The Bible says, “…for your Father knoweth
what things ye have need of, before ye ask him”
(Matthew 6:8). He knows what you desire; He knows
You Don’t Need To Ask Him
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye
desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them,
and ye shall have them (Mark 11:24).

Precious and loving Father, how awesome is your Name in all the earth! Your love reaches to
the heavens; your faithfulness is everlasting. You feed all humanity from the abundance of your own
house, letting them drink from your river of delights. As I enjoy a rich time of fellowship with you
in prayer today, I receive all my heart’s desires, in Jesus’ Name.
