;D Years ago I read an article in Venture Inward about a person who asked God for a surprise, so I began the practice. I ask three times and then let it go. Usually I do this if I am feeling a little down about something and I want a pick me up from my Loving Father/Mother Creator. I like the personal touch, and nothing is more personal that the One who loves us most!
Some people are accustom to asking for parking places, or help finding this or that. I ask for everything. Leave no stone unturned I say! I asked for a car, I got one, free...that's right I said FREE! I've got connections. Now don't get the idea that God is a cash cow, that is not the way it works. But I did need a car, and I got one.
This article that you are going to read if you go to the link is about asking God for what you want. Just be careful what you ask for, you might get it!
