Have you ever asked or prayed for something only to either not get it or get something you were not expecting? 

For years I was asking and praying for weight loss, six pack abs, and a Tim Berry physique but y’all know that ain’t happening!
I am sure many folks ask to win the lottery, but we all know how that goes! 

The thing I have learned in my sobriety and in my walk with Jesus is that it is OK to ask for things….BUT…. 

make sure we are asking with an open mind, willing heart, and correct motives.

It seems all those years I  asked for weight loss while not being completely willing to do the required work on my part with diet and exercise. 

When I do ask in prayer with the right motives, the right things happen. 

While I don’t have six pack abs and a Tim Berry Physique at the moment, 

I have lost 107 pounds and kept it off for over 5 years now. 

So, for me, the lesson is to look at my motives before asking in prayer to make sure they are backed by willingness and effort on my part. 

When I do this, things tend to work out pretty well. 

How’s this working out for you in your asking and prayer life?.. 

“Before we begin, we ask God to direct our thinking, especially asking that it be divorced from self-pity, dishonest or self-seeking motives.” Big Book pg 86 

 Lord let us ask You for anything with an open mind, willing heart and motives not based on self-will, AMEN. 

“You do not get things because you do not ask for them. Or if you do ask, you do not receive because your reasons for asking are wrong. You want these things only to please yourselves.” James 4: 3-4 

Have a blessed day Y’all!
