And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it – John 14:13-14
Only someone with unlimited power could make a statement such as the one above. Jesus said if you ask anything in His Name, He’d do it; irrespective of what it is! As long as it’s something that’s good for you and good for God, you can ask and it’ll be granted you. In Jeremiah 32:27 the Lord said, “Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me?” He’s the Big Boss; He owns everything; and He’s saying to you today: “Ask what you will and it shall be done unto you.”
Some people say, “We should never ask God for the things we want; God only grants our needs, not our wants.” But the Lord says, “…if ye shall ask anything.” This certainly doesn’t refer to asking for “your needs.” In fact, you’re not supposed to ask for your needs because they’re already catered for by your heavenly Father. The Bible says He’s the One who takes care of the sparrows, and the lilies of the field. If He would cater for the birds and flowers, how much more will He take care of you, His beloved child (read Matthew 6:31-32 AMP).
Religion has cheated many and deceived them to thinking they’d have to ask for their needs! Paul said, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19). Paul wasn’t making a promise to the Church on God’s behalf; he had come to know God’s ways of doing things: He supplies not just some but ALL our needs! Therefore, when you recognize a need, you don’t need to pray, “Oh God, I need such-and-such”; just declare that you have it in the Name of Jesus.
As the seed of Abraham, you deserve to have the best things in life; there’s no reason for you to be in lack or to envy others over what they have. You can have anything you want. Nothing is too good for you. Be bold to ask what you want in His Name, and receive, that your joy may be full (John 16:24).

The Lord is my Shepherd, therefore I do not lack. I’m walking in the light of my prosperity today, for I’m the seed of Abraham; I have access to wealth untold; I’m supply conscious! I have all my needs met, because I’m plugged to God’s unending supply.
