Ezra 8:23 So we fasted and besought our God for this: and he was intreated of us.
Ezra states a beautiful truth. God works and answers prayer. When they needed help, they could have asked the king. Instead of asking the king they decided to ask God. God heard their prayer. He answered them.
Do you need something? You can ask God. He is a prayer-hearing and prayer answering God. This is explicitly taught all through the Scriptures.
You have not because you ask not. You ask, and He doesn’t answer because you ask for the wrong reason. God loves you and is eager to answer your prayers.
