2. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one
who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. (chorus)

3. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 
Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. (chorus)

If any of you lacks wisdom, it will be given to you. James 1:5-8
