You Do Not Have Because You Do Not Ask

You Do Not Have

…You do not have because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures. (James 4:2, 3 NIV)

How many times have you prayed for something and the answer always seems to be no, no, no?  I have been praying for something the last several months but hasn’t provided it yet.  After reading these verses today I realize that I am praying for the wrong motives.  I need to change so my desires are in line with God’s will.  Lord, please forgive me for asking for things with selfish motives.  Lord, please change the desires of my heart to be in line with your will.  Amen.
