From October 10, 2017:

The scripture is James 5:5-8. In verse 5 it tells us to ask God, who gives to all. But in vs.6-8, as Paul Harvey used to tell us, there is 'the rest of the story.' We must "ask in faith, never doubting."

The message for us from the pulpit was (1) Are you really praying? In 1 Thessalonians it tells us to give thanks to God, pray for others, and pray continually; (2) Ask forgiveness, confess, and repent as it says in 1 John, Proverbs, and 1 Peter; (3) Ask with pure motives seeking the Lord and thanking God with the realization that it may not be the time or you may not be ready to receive the answer you seek as many of the Psalms or the lesson on time in chapter 3 of Ecclesiastes, and in Matthew 7:7 it says 'Ask,' 'Knock,' and you will 'receive, find, and the door will be opened.'
