“Ask, and Ye Shall Receive; Knock, and It Shall Be Opened unto You”

Doctrine and Covenants 4:7

7 Ask, and ye shall receive; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. Amen.

President Boyd K. Packer said:

“No message appears in scripture more times, in more ways than, ‘Ask, and ye shall receive.’ [Matthew 21:22; James 4:3; 1 John 3:22; 1 Nephi 15:11; Enos 1:15; Mosiah 4:21; D&C 4:7; and Moses 6:52 are examples.] While we may invite this communication, it can never be forced! If we try to force it, we may be deceived.”
