When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.

– James 4:3 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

What does it mean to have wrong motives? When our requests don’t match our character.

God loves us so much that He will protect us from our prayers.
