DAY 26: “ASK WHATEVER OF HIM” - (Mark 11:24) … “ASK GOD FOR HIS MERCY” …
Good evening. Great s His faithfulness.
Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
"And if you don't happen to receive the whatever, then ask God to search your heart and show you why. Maybe it's a timing thing. Or maybe it's not for you. Whatever the reason, don't get discouraged. If your main whatever is to glorify God and build HIS KINGDOM, He'll be pleased with your ask and will most certainly honor it. And who knows, you may even get the silly amount extra."

Than God that what we want actually matters to Him. Ask for something big enough that failure is guaranteed unless He shows up. Praise Him for being mighty enough to do it!
Moving Forward Questions from the Devotional -
Do you sometimes feel like it's a better, safer option to not ask God for whatever? Why or why not? See my video I gave some really good answers on this question.
God knows the situation, the deficiency, and the need. What might He be inviting you to ask for right now? I have been feeling both sad and hurt so I've been asking God to relieve these feelings, see my video for further discussion was a good chat tonight.
Our main whatever should always be to glorify GOD and build His Kingdom. Start by asking for that and record how He answers. See my video for further discussion.
Brothers, be always occupied with the intellectual prayer and do not move far away from God until you receive God’s mercy and pity. Never ask for anything but for His infinite mercy and this is enough for your salvation. When asking for His mercy, cry aloud in entreaty with humble and contrite heart form morning to night and, if possible, during the whole night, saying unceasingly: Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on us”.
St. John Chrysostom
“The Lord bless you and keep you;
25 The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
26 The Lord [a]lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.” ’
