GOD wants us to trust him enough to "ask".James 4:3 reads [“Ye Have Not, Because Ye Ask Not”] So that says to me that "asking" is key! Having the courage to ask is really the first step. But just asking is not enough. You have to believe that you will get it. Having the faith that it will be done unto you as you believe is also key.
All I'm saying is "Ask", Believe, and Achieve your objective. GOD loves you and I do too. Have a great day.
