Luke 11:9 KJV
And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
The context is certainly of prayer and, though the conclusion is to ask for the Holy Spirit it seems obvious that the is not the exclusive petition for which we may ask. The model prayer includes much beside that.
Seek the Lord's wisdom in what to ask, but ask Him.
Do not limit your prayer life to one thing or the other, ask.
• Ask the Lord for daily bread
• Ask the Lord for forgiven sins
• Ask the Lord for deliverance from evil and temptations
• Ask for grace to forgive and love and seek the good of those who have hurt you.
• Ask for the resources to minister to those who have come to you in need.
And it shall be given unto you.
