2 Kinds Of Asking You Have Never Been Told

Many people know about one aspect of asking but only few people know about the other aspects. There are three types of asking found in the scripture:

2 kind of questions you have never been told


  • Asking For Things
  • Asking For Empowerment
  • Asking Questions
  • Conclusion

(1). Asking For Things

This type is the most familiarized by many. There is nothing wrong in asking but it is disgusting the way many believers have become self-centered. King Solomon for instance, God told him to ask anything he wanted, a profound statement that many of us will be eager to hear, but Solomon asked for one thing that would benefit the whole people of the land. God didn’t only gave him what he asked for, He also gave him wealth and prosperity.

Our God is a prayer answering God

(2). Asking For Empowerment

The platform of prayer and fasting is the platform of empowerment. We saw Jesus who went to the wilderness to fast for forty days and nights, just to be empowered.

Before He fasted, He was like any ordinary man in the land but when He returned, He was extraordinary because He had been empowered. Then, people began to exclaim, “what manner of man is this!” “Even the wind obeyed Him!” “We have seen strange things today!” Demons cried out His name and left their victims.

If you’re looking for supernatural power to deal with any devil or any of his agents, prayer and fasting is the platform you should plug into. Only few believers know about this, no wonder many believers are suffering the same kind of satanic assaults as the unbelievers.

(3). Asking Questions

King David asked questions always

We serve a question answering God. Listen: you’re not questioning God, you’re asking for direction. Don’t get it twisted, questioning God is not the same as asking question. David is a typical example of a ‘questions-asker’ He never made any move without asking God for direction.

There so many people in business today who would ventured into the wrong business without asking for direction. Practice asking questions, you will be amazed with the kind of response you will get. Many great servants of God are ‘question-askers,’ ask God genuine and sincere questions, you will be excited with the answers that you will find.


In this post, I discussed the three types of asking found in the scripture, one aspect is well known to many believers while the other aspects are not all known. Sadly, many believers capitalized only on the well known aspect and were eluded of benefits of the other aspects. The aspects discussed are as follow:

  • Asking for things
  • Asking for empowerment
  • Asking questions

God is not an idol, wait for an answer when you ask Him a question.

By next week Monday (7PM), we will start a new series titled, “The Mystery of The Holy Spirit” Thanks for your time.

      1. Yes ma, you are on point. “Laundry list of wants” I love that! Prayer is also dialogue between us and God. Most born again Christians also pray with their mind racing from one issue to the other. “How do we pay the school fees of the children who are about to resume a week time?” How do I deal with a disrespectful wife?” A good christian will keep all issues away from his/her mind to pray effectively and intelligently. Thanks for you valuable input. God bless you🌺

    2. Apt!. I love the 3rd discussion on asking questions. We rarely do that. Some folks believe in “not questioning” God. As much as that is a thing because He is unfailing but sometimes (most times) He wants us to ask Him questions and gain clarity, because that is what He wants us to have – Clarity. 💯

    3. Patience, a quality we can all make better use of. In a world where immediate gratification is what is offered readily in many situations, it can be difficult to wait. But, as the common saying goes, good things take time.

      1. Yes, God’s way is not our way. God does not see the way man’s see. As heaven is far fro the earth earth, so are His thoughts far from our thoughts. Thanks for input. God bless you🌹
