Be honest. We’ve all done it before. We pray and ask God to do something we really need Him to do. Whether it’s praying for the recovery of a loved one, praying for a financial miracle or even praying that we don’t get caught (if you REALLY want to be honest). Has there ever been times that those prayers DIDN’T work like we wanted them to? Sure there have. The reason is that prayer is never designed to CONVINCE God to DO anything. Prayer is communication with God. You talk. He talks. Sometimes God allows difficulties to occur in our lives so that we can experience a different side of Him. Prayer isn’t about manipulating God to get on your page. Prayer is about conditioning YOUR heart to be ok with HIS page.
