Ask for Good Things!
One day, a teenage boy informed me that he did not believe in prayer. I asked him why not, and he stated, “Because one time I begged God to answer my prayer and He did not do it.” I responded, “If you asked God for the right thing, you can be sure He gave it to you, because He promises that ‘everyone that asketh receiveth.’ Maybe the problem was that you were not asking for the right thing.
“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” (Matthew 7:7–8).
