You Have Not Because You Ask Not

"You want what you don't have, so you scheme and kill to get it. You are jealous of what others have, but you can't get it, so you fight and wage war to take it away from them. Yet you don't have what you want because you don't ask God for it."
James 4:2

Lord, forgive us for being so busy we fail to ask you for what we want and need. Forgive us for depending upon human effort and strength to obtain the desires of our hearts. Forgive us for developing schemes to undermine the efforts of others because we want to take their place or we want what they have. Forgive us for coveting our neighbors stuff to point where we are willing to do emotional or bodily harm to take it away from them. Thank you Lord, that after we have confessed you are faithful to forgive.

We come humbly now knowing you are the supplier of all our needs. We come repentant realizing that you are the one who grants us the desires of our hearts. We come to you now remembering that you are the source of every good a perfect gift. We ask now in Jesus name that we may be empowered to bring forth fruit for your glory and not for our self-satisfaction. In Jesus name, Amen.



During this season of Lent, you are encouraged to increase your prayer time and join the Daniel Fact. Information about he Daniel Fast is found at in the Read Section archives on the home page. As Daniel prayed three times daily in the face of great opposition, so we are praying morning, noon and night.

Your prayer assignment today is to pray for nuclear and environmental scientists and ecologists today who impact all of creation.

One way to remind us to pray three times daily is by wearing a purple "prayer ban" with Morning, Noon and Night and Daniel 9:3 written on it. You can order them 5 for $7.00 and 10 for $14.00. Send check or money order to Praycation, 500 8th Avenue South Suite 201, Nashville, Tennessee 37203. You can always email us at for more information.
