Bread and stones and prayer

"Ask and you will receive... If your son asks for bread, will you give him a stone? ... If you who are evil know how to give good things to your children...."

But: even the children of God can ask for stones, and God will not answer their prayers.

The point is not so much the efficacy of asking and seeking. The point is the goodness of God.
