No, you can't omit "for," since that sounds like you are talking to the number. You ask somebody for something.
(There are a few special cases where this rule doesn't apply, though not too many spring to mind. For example, you can ask forgiveness -- though you can also ask for forgiveness. But you can't ask tolerance; there the "for" is required.)
