The Lord wants to answer our prayers beyond our expectations. When Hannah prayed for a son, the Lord granted her more than she expected and made her the mother of a great prophet. When we remember the cross of Calvary, He who gave His Son for us will surely grant everything else that we need. The Lord encourages us to ask so that we can receive. Our heavenly Father enjoys giving good gifts to His children. We must live in close fellowship and intimacy with God and our hearts must be in tune with Him. Then the Lord will grant the desires of our heart.
"He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?" (Romans 8:32)
