Today’s message: Dare to Ask




“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”

(Ephesians 3:20, NLT)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

When was the last time you asked God to do something impossible, something out of the ordinary? I believe that one reason we don’t see God do great things is because we only ask Him for small things. Most people pray over their food, pray for protection, or pray for wisdom. That’s all good, but don’t limit what God can do. There should be something you’re praying about, something that you’re asking for that is beyond you, something that you can’t accomplish in your own strength. Do you dare to ask?

Your dreams may look impossible. You don’t have the funding or the connections, but God is saying, “I dare you to ask Me to bring it to pass. I dare you to ask Me to show you a flood of My favor.”

All through the scripture, we see people doing this. Elisha prayed that it wouldn’t rain, and for three and a half years there was no rain. Joshua prayed for more daylight, and God stopped the sun. Follow their example and step out in faith. Dare to ask, dare to believe God, and see His mighty hand move on your behalf!


Father, today I give praise and glory to You because You are worthy, You are able, and You are at work in me. I dare to ask for the impossible, to believe that You can accomplish infinitely more than I could ever ask or think in Jesus’ name. Amen.

— Joel & Victoria Osteen


  1. Our heavenly Father, may your name be exalted. I pray for wisdom to prevail in my Country Zambia. Wisdom to seek capacity equal to the task at leadership level. Wisdom among fellow Zambians to seek entrepreneurial approach to life and good work ethics. Wisdom to learn from other more developed Countries and regions of the World so that we grow from them, and wisdom to boldly question, without fear or favour, and correct our leaders who do not do what they said they would do. Yes, I pray for wisdom. In Christ I pray. Amen.

  2. Amen to this article. Now, a point of correction,it was the Prophet Elijah who prayed that here be no rain & there was no rain for three years,not the Prophet Elisha as this article says.
