What would you ask for?

I recently read the passage in I Kings, where Solomon takes over as king, following his father, King David, who had grown old.  In a dream, the Lord says to Solomon, "Ask for anything you want me to give you."  Solomon chose wisdom.  God was so pleased with Solomon's choice, that he offers to give him wealth, long life, and honor, in addition to wisdom.

In Luke 18, a blind beggar shouted out to Jesus, "Son of David, have mercy on me!" But those who went before Jesus told him to be quiet.  He just shouted even more! Jesus heard him and stopped and asked, "What do you want me to do for you?" He said, "Lord I want to see."  Jesus healed him immediately, and the beggar followed Jesus, praising God.

If God said, "Ask for anything you want me to give you" or "What do you want me to do for you?" 
what would you say?

  1. I have asked for, prayed for and received wisdom. It is an amazing thing to know certain decisions come straight from God. I pray for wisdom and revelation every day. :)
