You lust and do not have.  You murder and covet and cannot obtain.  You fight and war.  Yet you do not have because you do not ask.  (Jas 4:2)

But even now I know that whatever You ask of God, God will give You.  (Joh 11:22)

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.  (Jas 1:5)

These passages from the Bible remind us to ask God for the things that we need and for the things that we would like to have.  Certain Bible verses remind us that God will not withhold ANY good thing from the upright.  (Ps 34:10; 84:11)  Glory to God!

There are several Bible verses that remind us to ask God for what we desire; and they go on to explain that He will hear us and will answer our prayers.  (See Mt 7:7-8; Lk 11:9-10; Joh 15:7) 

The best part is that James 1:5 (above) reminds us that when we ask God for something that we need, He answers our prayer abundantly and without any criticism whatsoever!  Hallelujah! 

We serve a good and loving God.  He wants us to bring our needs, our hurts, and our sorrows to Him.  He wants us to recognize that He is available to us, and that He wants to help and bless us daily.  He wants to comfort us and to bind up our wounds.  (Ps 147:3; 2 Cor 1:4; 7:6)

Stop and take inventory of your life.  Determine what your needs may be and take them to the Lord right now.

So let us keep on coming boldly to the throne of grace, so that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.  (Heb 4:16 ISV)
