So I say to you, Ask, and it will be given to you; — Luke 11:9.
I suspect that this verse has been misinterpreted as much as any. Jesus is not saying that if you ask God for a million bucks, it will arrive on your doorstep. Jesus was encouraging us to start a dialogue with God. You may ask for a million, but through conversation with God, the two of you may come up with an answer to what you really need.
For a thousand reasons we find reasons/excuses why not to talk with God. That can be the biggest mistake we can make. Ask God, and you will receive the truth which its more valuable than a pot of Gold.
