Asking Aright

A clergyman once summed up prayer by saying that in the divine storehouse there are thousands of blessings laid away labeled "Uncalled For."

The Bible promise, "Ask, and it shall be given you," Matt. 7:7; is a very simple one. Like most Bible promises, however, it is also very profound. Asking never tells God anything that He does not already know. It is simply a confession of human inadequacy and incompleteness. But asking does reach out for something beyond the human—something wiser, stronger, greater. Such qualities are among the divine blessings God has in store for us. And we can always have them for the asking.
