The Big Ask and the Even Bigger Answer

John 15:5-11

Grace in us Revealed to us

Look for God to be glorified in the answer to prayer. We just can't ask to be prosperous and to be like Jesus in the same breath, we can't, but it's in the fruitfulness of the branches that God is glorified so ask to be fruitful. 'Man's chief end is to glorify God [John 15:8] and to enjoy him forever [John 15:11]' (WSC ans. 1) Maybe our main reason for not asking is that we don't get it that the 'greater works' are to be done in conjunction with 'asking anything in the name of Jesus' for the glory of God [John 14:13-14.]
