After learning the Biblical principle of "ask and you will receive", Hope get's a great idea.  But Hope's plan to help restore Grace's sight takes her where she'd never imagined!  It's an exciting adventure to a time long ago to build faith for today!

 

How about you

Have you ever prayed for something very earnestly, and wondered why you didn't get what you asked for?

 

Check this out

Jesus DOES want us to pray, and share our desires and requests with him.  As he said to a crowd of people in Matthew chapter 7:

 

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.

If this passage is all we look at, it seems pretty straightforward--that Jesus wants people to know they can come to him and ask, seek, and knock.  But let's not forget the rest of what Jesus said to the people that day.  In the chapter just before that, Jesus told the people exactly how to pray.  Here's what He said:

 

your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

 "This, then, is how you should pray:
   " 'Our Father in heaven,
   hallowed be your name,
 your kingdom come,
   your will be done
      on earth as it is in heaven.

So, the emphasis is not on us and our desires, but on God Himself and what He wants.  That is where our desires should flow from.  In fact, Jesus goes on in chapter 6 to say:

So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

It's important to remember that God already knows your needs, and even your wants.  He wants us to care FIRST about His kingdom and His ways--making THEM a priority in our life, and everything else comes behind that.  When that is our true heart when we pray, those other things will fall into their proper place.
