In today's Gospel reading from Mark 6, Jesus summoned the Twelve, began to send them out to preach repentance and gave them authority over unclean spirits. They went off and indeed drove out many demons. It shows that all our gifts come from God and when you need a special gift, he gives it to you too. This leads me to think that we should ask for all the gifts we need for our work. Yes, ask him to make us special.
