On Prayer: There are blessings that God has chosen to give, but only as His people ask Him in faith. Most of God’s promises for increased blessing are not guarantees, but invitations to partner with Him in holy, believing, persevering prayer (Isa. 59:2; Mk. 11:23; Lk. 18:7-8, Jas. 1:6-7).
You do not have because you do not ask. (Jas 4:2)
