Matthew 7:7-8

Ask, and It Will Be Given

7 a  Ask b  and it will be given to you; c  seek, and you will find; d  knock, and it will be opened to you. 8For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.

James 4:2-3

2You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have, because you do not ask. 3You ask and do not receive, because you ask e  wrongly, to spend it on your passions.
