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!

"Some serious issues with the performance"
There are some pretty significant issues and either the script that the narrator was using or he simply did a poor job of reading it at certain points. There were parts that were downright nonsensical in the way they were put together. For example, at the end of one of the chapters there is supposed to be a breakdown of how to conduct a 30 minute appointment. In the breakdown if you add up all of the timeslots he lists it adds up to 61 minutes. Perhaps this is an editing problem, but it definitely makes that entire section unhelpful.
"Good book for gaining new perspective"
