Are your prayers too small? Use these Scriptures

Posted By on October 16, 2019


– I’ma give you the two scriptures that changed my entire life. Now, I had heard these
scriptures growing up. But, it didn’t sit with
me until I was homeless. The first scripture, “You
have not cause you ask not.” Now listen to me. I cannot tell you how important
that single scripture is. A lot of the problems I was havin, and you may be havin just like me, is because what I was askin
God for was the wrong stuff. I kept goin to him too small. I was prayin for stuff
that really didn’t need that much of a prayer. Lord, help me make my rent. Well, don’t he always? Don’t you always get your rent? What about if you changed that? Suppose you said, “Lord,
help me make my mortgage.” you thing God don’t know you
ain’t got the down payment? You think God don’t know
you need another job? He know all of that,
but if you don’t ask him for it, he can’t. God don’t give you what you want. He give you what you believe. See, you been blowin it. If you up your ask, He ups his give. That’s his promise. You have not, cause you ask not. Lord, help me fix my car,
so I can make it to work. Stop prayin ova these raggedy cars. Why don’t you ask God for a
car that don’t need fixin? [Audience Member] Yeah Oh, you think that’s too big for him? Is that it? So, you don’t ask this
great God for big stuff cause you don’t see how you can get it. You not posed to see how you can get it. You just posed to ask him for it. See, the how to is none of your business. You keep getting in
the way of the blessing cause you all up in the how to part of it. Show me the scripture where he tells you to figure out how to do anything. He don’t ask you to how to nothin. You have not cause you ask not. Second one. You don’t have it written down. Everything you’re asking God
for, it has to be written down. This is not a theory. This is another scripture. I’ma give it to you. It’s in your Bible. Habakkuk two and two. It says, “write the vision
and make it plain, so that he” “who reads it will run to
it. And even though it tary” That mean take a long time. “Wait for it, for surely it
will come at an appointed time.” – [Audience Member] Yes. (audience applauding) That’s in your Bible. That’s in the copy you got. Dat ain’t in the rich people’s Bible, that’s in the copy you got. It’s in the drawer at the hotel. (laughing) It’s Habakkuk two and two. (woman laughing) write the vision and make it plain. Everything you want you
posed to write down. I’m tellin you man, this is how it works. You notice that rich people
don’t really have degrees. Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg, they ain’t got a degree between them. But they got more degrees workin for em than a thermometer. (audience wooing) Education ain’t in the Bible. Harvard is not in there. UCLA is not in the Bible. You just need the word. You need to know what
it’s sayin apply to you. You know why? Cause it’s a promise of his. [Audience Member] Yeah He ain’t neva lied, he
always come through. If I was you, I’d try that. If you keep doin what you been doin, you gon keep getting what you been gettin. If somebody came and told me to do that, I would at least give that a try. Those two scriptures can change your mind. It’a change your whole life. Thank y’all for comin. (audience cheering)

  1. I am trying to figure out what is ok to ask God for..I have a good but of course I want a better one, with higher pay or I want to be compensated more at my current job, I have a semi-new car (2016) but it has somethings that need to fixed on it, I have a home that I rent but I would like to be blessed with a bigger home that I own. I may have answered my own question but Are these things that I can still ask God for??

  3. He's absolutely right about writing it down. I've felt so lost and confused in the past not knowing what to do feeling worthless. I've started praying bigger believing harderย and writing to God, and I have never felt better. This is best piece of advice I have had inย  a long time.

  5. Steve… I donโ€™t even know if you even read these messages. But, God used you to help me today. I went to see a property today. And I was nervous. I had so many questions…and not enough answers. You made me look at what I am asking for. When you say the how to is none of your business…that hit home. This property is the fulfillment of what I wrote on New Yearโ€™s Eve this year… I thank you for allowing God to use you. Thank you for keeping me motivated. ๐Ÿ˜˜ I pray that the favor of the Lord will always be with you,

  9. Steve Habakkuk is not in the Bible at the hotel. Why? The Gideons Bible is New Testament only. Habakkuk is only in the Old Testament.

  10. Iโ€™ve asked, prayed, claimed it as though it were already done, written it down, so I guess I need to write some bigger โ€œasksโ€.

  11. Steve, I prayed that a child diagnosed with cancer would be cured and they passed away. I guess my prayer was just too small huh?

  12. That is a whole lie of interpretation of the scriptures. Go to James 4:3 for an explanation of that verse. Line upon line and percept upon percept to understand that verse.

  17. Great messages! Back in 2002 my pastor in Los Angeles California received a Bentley for his birthday. That isnspired me so much, he shared a scripture: Mark 11:24. I prayed and believe God for a Rolls Royce Phantom. I was only 22 years old at the time. I'm 39 now and have driven 4 Rolls Royce Phantom's. Great job Mr Steve! For pouring out your heart.

  20. Praise God and all that but this gotta be the stupidest motivational shit I ever heard. Why God didnโ€™t allow me to get that raise for my job is it because I didnโ€™t wish for lotto numbers so I would not have to work again? Gimme a break๐Ÿ˜ช

  21. I think people pray small because they're told from the time they're children to be grateful for all the small things, you are taught to feel bad to ask for things you don't need immediately – you're taught to not be "greedy." The message comes across that if you ask for abundance, you're being ungrateful.

  22. Thank you for this. I love it. Your motivation I share the link with my teen boys. Especially since they get to hear it from another male role model. Your speaking into so many lives golden nuggets. Trust me they'll root and when it's needed most it will sprout. Much success to u and yours. โค

  27. You saying you are not a preacher? You one of the most brilliant preachers of the gospel I ever heard!!!

  28. I think it's so easy to put God in a box, I know there are plenty of times where I did not pray for stuff I wanted because I didn't want to seem greedy for example asking for a house etc. This is a great message.

  33. "Ask it will be given to you, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be open" -GOD ๐Ÿค—โค

    Take the limits off God I am a witness if you ask Him he will give it to you. Also, write the vision and make it plain. Get a pen/pencil, get some paper, speak it into existence, PRAY DAILY, BELIEVE GOD, TRUST HIM, AND PUT WORK BEHIND YOUR FAITH. God is so good and His thoughts are good towards you..start writing the vision and speak it into existence daily ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜Šโคโค

  34. Steve Harvey just simply
    Believes!
    The Church has been struggling to remain religious! This man comes along and just walks into the promises by simply

    Believing Gods Word, until it manifestโ€™s then he comes with a testimony! His closed doors opened up greater doors!โ˜๐Ÿฝ

  35. Thank You, Steve Harvey for this wonderful message! You always inspire me.

    I kept praying for a mortgage to get out of my apartment and buy my first house. I wrote it down and turned it over to God. I knew it come when the time was right. Well, God just blessed me with a mortgage a week ago, and my realtor and I making an offer on a wonderful starter house tomorrow. I almost can't believe the price of the house considering all that I am getting. God really does work in mysterious ways.

    God is great! Thank you Lord for the many blessings you have and continue to bestow upon me!
