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!

Eye opening

This book truly gave me a new perspective on giving, support raising and ministry budgets. I encourage every missionary to read this. But more than that I think all Christians should read this to understand why and how to give.

Changed my view on fundraising

I’ve worked mission-partnership based before, but never really got to 100% and never enjoyed doing it. After this book I’m completely ready for a new mission-adventure with my husband and am actually looking forward to it! I highly recommend this book to everyone even slightly considering working mission-funded

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.

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.
