Publisher's Summary

As a ministry worker, raising support can be a daunting task. It doesn't have to be intimidating though. It isn't about money or asking people to give. It is about looking to God to provide for you. He has given you a vision for ministry, and now you get to invite others into that vision. Your job is to pray and work hard to discover those whom the Lord has already prepared to invest in you and your ministry. God has done His work. Now it's time for you to do yours.

A case in point: Nehemiah was very nervous about meeting with the wealthiest, most powerful man on the planet. He was asking King Artaxerxes to fund his Jerusalem restoration project. But when it came time to make his appeal, this lowly cupbearer first looked up to the Person who really provides resources. At the moment of truth, Nehemiah lifted his heart and made The God Ask. In Nehemiah 2:4 he describes the exchange: "Then the king said to me, 'What would you request?' So I prayed to the God of heaven."

Instead of going into appointments fearing what your fellow man will say, you can have confidence that God is superintending the whole process. This audiobook will help you embrace the fact that this is not a Man Ask. No. It is a God Ask!

Amazing book.

This This book completely changed my view of support raising. I began reading this book thinking that it would be a chore, and not what I wanted to do. I am now looking forward to the opportunity! This book helped me to understand the Biblical foundation of raising support. Thank you Mr. Shadrach.

This book puts wind in your sails!

Building a team of committed stakeholders is no easy task. The God Ask gives you fresh wisdom and acts as a great reminder of the privilege to serve God with everything you are. The journey is very humbling but this read forces you to look biblically and act accordingly. I loved it!

Good lesson on proper fund raising in church

This give a good perspective on church fund raising. Bottom line is first Ask God to lead you, don’t abuse or waste fund God has blessed you with. Great points and ideas.... I wish some of the TV Evangelist followed this steps detailed in this book. But we live in a fallen world which is why we have to pray first for decernment

An essential listen for all Christians.

I will continue to listen to this for years to come and improve the way I treat those who support me and the way I support others. This is not only important for understanding giving but also for understanding what it is the Bible thinks about asking and the responsibility of those who ask and those who receive and those who are asked.
