Oh sure, you can knock and it will be opened. Seek and it will be found. Ask and it will be answered.

This quote, or a similar version, is found in the bible and in various songs; reminding us that we will be looked after, we are not alone, and all we need to do is ask. 

Everything is available to us, for the asking, knocking or seeking. But as the quote points our our being grateful for what we have right now will bring more of the same our way. If we are thankful for the blessing bestowed upon us, the blessings will compound.

But you could also just say 'thanks' in advance.

Thank you.... that's it.... 
Do you remember, years ago, when Miss Oprah started talking about a gratitude journal, and how this would enhance your life? How having an 'attitude of gratitude' would transform your life for the better? You were to make a list each day of the things you were grateful for and just say thank you.

Just saying thank you is enough. If the only prayer you ever said was 'thank you'.... that is all that is required. Gratitude is the pathway to joy, happiness and abundance. There is no need to be constantly striving, simply be aware of, and acknowledge all that you have.

"In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it's wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices."  - Elizabeth Gilbert
