Say I know my friend is a talent in drawing. So, I ask him to join a drawing competition.

How to translate "I asked him to join a competition"?

    Just to amplify on #2: The literal meaning of that construction is "to request so that X does Y."

    I asked her to come at 10:00.
    [彼女に]10時に来るように頼んだ。
    I told her to come at 10:00.
    [彼女に]10時に来るように言った。
