Asking

“Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me¬†anything in my name, I will do it.” ~John 14: 13-14

I forget this all the time.
I forget that God wants to bless me.
I forget that when I pray according to His will, my asks will be granted.
I forget to ask.
I forget that I matter to Him.
I forget that He delights when I ask Him for anything.
I forget He already knows what my heart desires.
I forget He already has a treasure chest full of goodies for me.
I forget He wants to use me to glorify Christ.
I forget.

Today… I am remembering.
Today… I am asking.

… for effectiveness and efficiency in my work for His Kingdom.
… for JUSTICE and an end to human trafficking.
… for continued health in my family.
… for miraculous healing friends who battle sickness.
… that He kick cancer in the face.
… for His continued favor in our lives.
… for financial independence.
… that we are responsible with his financial blessings.
… for reminders of His overwhelming love.
… that He reveal his overwhelming love to others thru me.
… for brokenness that makes me whole as He intended.
… for refuge.
… for a journey worth journeying.

Today… I am asking.

What can I ask for you?

    Well, if you’re asking…

    …for Him to put the pieces in place quickly to make HTN a full time ministry and my life’s “work”.

    …for my autistic son Elijah to be healed.

    …for wisdom.

    …for financial independence.

    …for his guidance in my personal relationships.

    …wisdom again.

    …for Him to continue to healing the wounds that run so deeply within me.

    …for blessing over Restoration Church (a new church in my area), Paseo, Crosspoint and all the churches who have touched my heart in some way.

    …wisdom.

    …that He comforts my friend Kevin who is struggling with his faith and the loss of a close friend.

    …for restoration in relationships damaged by my pride and arrogance.

    …did I mention wisdom?

    What a wonderful post. A sort of checklist of things we should be appreciative we’re able to ask for, but that too few seem to appreciate. It’s almost as if people today forget, “Ask and ye shall receive” is as much a means of connection as it is a plea.
