If you could ask God for one thing…

I am preparing a sermon and need your input.  All you have to do is respond to the following question:

“If you could ask God for one thing (and only one thing), what would you ask for?”

Leave your response as a comment.  Thanks!

  2. Tender mercy in His providence as a Christian!

  3. Eddie Ross says:

    I’d ask for eyes to see my sin as He sees it, so that I’d find their temptations absolutely abhorent.

  4. Ranita says:

    His glory (and that will make me most satisfied).

  5. Davo says:

    Whirled peas.


    I’d probably ask that we could all have the ability to understand the perspective of those we disagree with.

    To let the world be played over and over and over until we all make it to New Jerusalem — not just a small bunch of us. I wouldn’t mind having a few roommates in my mansion if my folks & brothers could make it.

    Buut it would prbly be unwise to ask this b/c God’s plans will always be far superior to mine. I’d probably end up wrecking the universe.

    The Heart of Jesus Christ to see myself and others as He see’s us.

    Thanks for the responses everyone. In case you were wondering, the sermon I was preparing was from 1 Kings 3:1-28. Solomon was given an opportunity to ask God for anything and asked for “an understanding mind…that I [Solomon] may discern between good and evil.” I guess you could argue that Solomon’s need for “wisdom” was intensified because he was king, but the entire book of Proverbs tells us to seek wisdom and put off folly, regardless of who we are or our position in society. It seems like it would be an appropriate desire for us, as it was for Solomon.

    One simple request comes to mind Pastor Tim,….I would ask GOD to save all his creation from Satan. Forever remove the devil from all creation’s presence in the Earth, Heaven & beyond. Do you think that is too much to dream of asking,…if given the opportunity to ask such a request?

  10. Tim Farley says:


    Not only is it not too much to ask, the Bible tells us that is what will happen as part of God’s plan for his creation.
