Will God give you what you ask for?
No. God gives us what *he* wants us to have, but only when we are willing to accept it (that pesky free will thing again: God cannot give what we refuse to accept). Now, if our “want” corresponds with God’s design and will, then sure, we’ll get it.

How do you pray for something good to happen?
Give me assurance that there is no power greater than your name. Give me eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort my heart and establish me in every step I take. Through your mighty name, Amen. God of the Universe thank you that you have plans for me that are for my good and your glory.
