But there is a second key to praying. Ask but ask specifically. Paul in this prayer for the Colossians was asking that they would be filled with the knowledge of His will through all the wisdom and understanding the Spirit gives. Paul knew what he was asking for. Be specific and ask. James says you have not because you ask not. So ask and keep asking until you see the fulfilment of your prayers.
When our children were growing up, I constantly asked that they would grow in wisdom, in stature and in favour with God and with man, just as Jesus did as stated in Luke 2:52. I didn’t stop asking, because I knew that God would hear and answer my pray.
What is on your heart? We serve a great God and He is attentive to the voice of His people. So ask Him and believe for the impossible to be released in your midst.
