As I was praying today and (literally) crying out to God for our daughter, I began to think on some of the Scripture I know that talks about asking God. I decided to do a search of the word "ask" on Bible Gateway. My heart was so encouraged after reading these verses about asking God...
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.
Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.
If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.
I John 5:14-15
But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,
If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
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!
You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
You do not have because you do not ask God.
I am praying BOLDLY and ASKING God for some really big things for our daughter! I don't know exactly how God will answer my prayer, but I trust Him no matter what! I know that He hears my prayers, and I know that He will answer according to His good and perfect will!
God is good, all the time. All the time, God is good!
