Ask Big?

What are you asking from God that is big?

I've been struggling with that question lately. I often pray to God, but most of the things I pray about are little. I'll ask God for a safe trip home. I ask God for a good night's rest. I thank God for my food. I thank God that the Colts won the SuperBowl. : )

There is nothing wrong with praying about little things. Even Jesus taught us to thank God for "our daily bread."

But what about "Big" things?

Our prayers reflect our perception of God's power.
Do we believe God is capable of answering the big requests?
Do we really believe Ephesians 3:20 which teaches us that God is able to do immeasurably more than we ask or imagine?

We need to examine our prayer lists. Are we asking big?
