Acts 3:1-10. When has my request of God been much smaller than what he was prepared to give me? Present application?
John 12:20-26. Verse 22, Andrew is notable for bringing people to Jesus (see also John 1:41 and John 6:8). What makes someone good at this? Who may be ready for me to do this for them?
