‘I also said to the king: “If it pleases the king, let me have letters written to the governors of the region west of the Euphrates River, so that they will grant me safe passage until I reach Judah. And let me have a letter written to Asaph, keeper of the king’s forest, so that he will give me timber to rebuild the gates of the temple’s fortress, the city wall, and the home where I will live.” The king granted my requests, for I was graciously strengthened by my God.’ Nehemiah 2:7, 8
Do you have any needs today DearOne?! Yep. Have you been aggressive enough to ask? Just ask. Ask and It Is Given. Ask and you shall receive. Good things come to those who…ask.
Ask and keep asking.
Ask God Almighty, your mom, your teacher, bus driver, buddy, pal, boss, salesman … ask for what you want. And, keep on asking.
But, if you want to increase your odds, use Nehemiah’s formula:
1) he said a quick prayer
2) he asked with style, Darlingheart!
The formula for stylin’ askin’ comes down to this: sincerity + specific = intelligence.
