From the book we are reading during “The People Who Pray – 50 Days of Prayer at Calvary Chapel”


“Often we have the misconception that God is reluctant to answer prayer. We think that He must be begged or manipulated or argued into answering. I have come to assume that when it comes to asking in prayer, I have nothing to lose. If mine is not the right request offered at the right time, or if my motives are not quite right, what is the worst that can happen? God can say “No.” But if my request is something to which God can say “Yes,” then by asking I may receive a blessing I would not have obtained otherwise. I would rather go to my grave being guilty of asking for more than I received than for missing answers because I did not ask.” – Dr. Dave Earley
