The Daily Nosh – James 4:3

You ask and you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives so you may spend it on your passions.

Nosh: God looks at our hearts’ motivations before granting our prayer requests. A self-centered request, that is one that benefits only ourselves, increases the likelihood that God will not positively respond to our request. However, I believe this verse infers that God loves to answer prayers that not only are a blessing to ourselves but also are intended to bless and enrich others.
