What have I asked for?

What do I need?

Is it so much that it’s impossible to receive


Do I seek such things that are vain

That of greed and selfish desires

God will not see to

Praying daily only not to be heard

Pretentiously falling before God

        Shouting and crying       

Still no answer

What am I doing wrong?

Has God forgotten me?

As I open my Bible

The answer is right in front of me


You ask [God for something] and do not receive it, because you ask with wrong motives [out of selfishness or with an unrighteous agenda], so that [when you get what you want] you may spend it on your [hedonistic] desires. 

James 4:3 AMP
