It never ceases to amaze me how commercials get our attention. The Jingle or tune gets into our minds and we find ourselves whistling it, humming it and sometimes even singing it. Has this happened to you?
There is a Credit Union who has such as jingle that ends in “Just ask if we can do it for you, just ask!” In the book of James 4:2 the scripture reads “You don’t have what you want because you don’t ask God for it.”
Prayer is a vital thing to each Christian life. Talking to the Father about your hearts desires is something He wants us to do. You don’t have to be embarrassed or think that something you desire is insignificant because God cares about you and He is interested in what concerns you.
But you will miss His blessings if you refuse to open your heart to Him fully. It is true, He may not say yes to your request immediately or He may instruct you to wait for His perfect timing. He may even show you that what you are asking doesn’t fit His plans for your life.
The important thing for all of us to understand is that He is willing and waiting to respond. So, talk to your heavenly Father. Be assured that He is listening. Just ask if He can do it for you. Just ask!
