Ask God for whatever you desire.

Matt 7:7-12 NIV, "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks a fish, will he give him a serpent?If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets."

Before you assume you know what to do in a certain situation, ask God, or before you assume you know what that person sitting across from is thinking and feeling, specifically, ask God.
This is a good advice for all, old and young, whenever you need anything from him ask him that has everything within his reach and he will do it.
Before you lose your temper ask God how He would have you respond.
Before you assume you know all there is to know about all there is to know ask God.
Before you get married ask God whom He wants you to marry.
Before you tear into your teenager because it appears they have been disobedient, ask God to help you respond to this child you love with all your heart in the way He wants you to respond.
Before you change jobs ask God what He wants.
Before you assume you know how you should handle the difficult situation asks God to tell you how He wants you to handle the situation.
Before you treat someone with unkindness ask God to give you new words.
Before you quit ask God what He wants you to do.
Before you rush into the office ready to express how unhappy you are in the work place, ask God how He wants you to speak to your boss.
Ask God what He wants you to say. Ask God to show you what your boss needs from you.
Before you change jobs ask God what He wants.
Before you fuss at the lady behind the desk ask God to remind you of times when people have shown you patience. Ask God remind you what patience looks like.
Before you go too far into the day ask God to direct your path.
Shalom!

Yes, we have to ask God in the name of Jesus and with a humble heart all things that we need. God is a good Father and the best provider of all our needs. All that we have to do is to honestly and humbly ask Him in the name of Jesus. Thanks for the inspired post. God bless you always.

Though God knows our needs, yet we need to remind him to grant them to us
