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.

    Ques – Why is blogging important to you?

    Ans – Blogging is important to me because it provides me the opportunity to spread the word of Faith to a wide range audience across the globe. Thereby, changing lives and destinies.

    Ques – How do you help to make others better?

    Ans – People get better when I tell them the truth concerning their lives and destinies – most especially when they have accepted the truth and put my teachings into practice.

    Ques – What have you learnt from blogging?

    Ans – I have learnt so many things from blogging, especially from my fellow bloggers. I have learnt that whatever we post affects somebody’s life either positively or negatively. However, blogging has taught me several lessons. I have committed many blunders and corrected my mistakes. Now my writings have improved to a new level.

    Ques – What would you like to do that you can’t do now?

    Ans – I would like to be with my future partner right now because I’m missing her so much. But I would have to complete my NYSC (1 year Service for my father land) before I can see her.

    Ques – What is your favourite color and why?

    Ans – My favourite color is blue. Because it is cool. And I will always feel good whenever I’m wearing a blue shirt with a black suit.

    Ques – If you could change one thing in the world , what would that be?

    Ans – I would love to change people’s wrong mentality about serving God. Many still think that serving God is a waste of time. Or serving God will reduce them. I would be at their service if I could dispel the darkness that is dogging their paths and deliver them from the shackles of ignorance.

    Ques – What makes you happy?

    Ans – Jesus is the source of my joy and happiness. He has been doing some mind blowing things in my life everyday.

    Ques – Who is your favourite author and why?

    Ques – What is your greatest strength?

    Ans – My greatest strength is simply Jesus Christ. The Bible says, those who do know their God shall be strong and do exploits (Dan.11:32). He has given me the authority to exercise dominion over every affair of life.

    Ques – What is your favourite drink?

    Ans – I love fruit juice. But, because of the sugary content I have stopped taken it. As sugar is bad for my teeth. God has just delivered me from a teeth cavity. Honestly, I hate alcoholic drinks because it could ruin a destiny.

    Ques – If you were to get a paid vacation to anywhere in the world, where would you end up and why?

    Ans – I would love to be in United State of America (USA). Because it’s a great country with great people. Whereas i was born to be great. So, it would be a great thing for a great person to be in a great place.
