"Ask and it shall be given to you."
Many spiritual traditions teach this belief about prayer.
It illustrates how we believe that a Higher Power
is ever present and receptive to our needs and desires.
The power of prayer is in the asking.
In petitioning Spirit (or Love or the Universe or the All) for assistance,

In surrendering control and admitting we need sacred support
to guide us, heal us, sustain us,
we expand our own capabilities to let go
and receive the gifts of the spirit.
