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
