"Ask and it shall be given you....etc"

If you pray for years for the guidance to show more patience then suddenly decide no, you are going to pray for wealth... others will tell you that no, this is not what God meant by ask and it shall be given you...

Did I miss a 'get-out clause' somewhere in his offer??

whats your definition of wealth? you arent "wealthy" yet? do you mean money? you have no money? if everyone asks the same question, how does the answer manifest itself? maybe the money is already in the vicinity and the 1st person to take one step after "praying" gets his "question" answered 1st.

What else do you think she could have meant?  When anyone says  - Wealth.. it usually means  money...

Ask for what?  Yeah, I normally make longer posts than this, but this one's pretty short - when Jesus says "ask and it shall be given", what is he talking about?  Anything and everything, or certain things only?  Check the passage (don't ignore Luke, Matthew is not the only place where Jesus says this) and get back to me, ok :tu:

Wealth of health ? ......Wealth of family? ... ( and not I have my family's wealth lol ).......and wealth of love?   .........Hmmm doesn't quite roll of the ole tongue.lol.. But I did say  - Wealth  usually is linked to money.......Usually as  normally Posted Image

I have heard of people saying - I am rich in love .......I am full of good health... But  never rally heard anyone say -  I have a wealth of health ...I am not trying to argue this..just I personally have not heard of it

Wealth means many different things to many different people.  Would I be wealthy if I won 50 million dollars or just rich.

Why not say a billion. Wealth is relivant to only those that count pennies.  In India if you have a bag of rice you are wealthy. If you have but one bowl you are poor.  To me both are poor.
