    Are the two statments same in meaning?

    Statement1: "During this hour, I will refuse nothing that you request of me. During this hour, you can obtain everything for yourself and for the others for the asking."

    Statement2: "During this hour, everything is yours for the asking."

    Are the two statements above same in meaning?

    Thank you,

    Yes. The expression "yours for the asking" means that whatever you ask for shall be granted.
