Then, there is this interesting one that I had been misinterpreting all these years. I always thought "ask and ye shall receive" meant that god will provide for his children (Matthew 7:7-8).

However, when you read the whole thing, it's really talking about the love of god. Ask for it and you will receive it. So, I understood better the limitations on granting requests, and why so many reasonable prayers go unanswered.

"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. "
