James 1-3 Knowing [this], that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
4 But let patience have [her] perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all [men] liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
I think sometimes that God knows what you are asking for will be more of a curse than a blessing, and that maybe you need to realize what blessings you already do have and start thanking Him for those..
One other point is that God has blessed you, but sometimes the things you are asking for come in His timing... Wait on the Lord... Trust Him for He is faithful.. Stand on His word for your life...
Look to the Giver, not what can be given.. I have looked to what is in His hand before, taking my eyes off of Him... Seek Him
Why want God answer when we ask him to bless us?
You would help your children any way that you can to improve themselves.
How much assistance would you give them toward their destruction.
If they asked for money to pay their electric bill, you would give it to them.
If they needed your help because they already spent their money on crack cocaine you "MIGHT" pay their electric bill?
BUT If they are going to buy Crack Cocaine with it?
It depends on what you are going to do with a blessing that determines if you are going to get it.
I don't fully understand your question but I've never asked God to bless me! But I do believe that Gods' spirit lives within all of us and so I take great joy and delight in blessing my children daily through hugs,love and compassion because I am blessed to have them in my life:)
I feel blessed when good things have happened to me, when I leased expected them!
If your children were sick, you would not ask God to make your children well? Even, if you take them to the doctor?
What would happen if during the times of his judgments, that we were to pray for a blessing?
I think that the department of answered prayers will be closed for that weekend that weekend ???
I never ask god or the tooth fairy or the three bears anything really!

How do you remain patient when it seems as if everyone else is being blessed but you?There are several things that I've been praying about but at the top of my list, a new job. I know that the economy is bad but many of my friends have landed the job of their dreams while I'm still waiting on...
