What I Pray About When I Pray

Oct 18, 2020

What do you typically pray about?  Be honest: Is your prayer life more about getting God to do your will or you to do His?   I’ll be the first to admit that it’s much easier for me to pray “let this cup of suffering pass from me” than it is to say to my Heavenly Father, “nevertheless, not my will, but yours be done.”   Yet, there is nothing so freeing and fulfilling than to be right where God means for me to be doing right what God means for me to do.   He’s the God of both the hills and valleys, and I have His promise that Jesus will be with me to guide, strengthen and encourage in the ups and downs of life.  So, I talk to Him.  Not in order to secure what I need to build my own kingdom, but to request what I need to live for His.  Prayer involves seeking what we need to do what God wants.  Pray for God’s grace to do God’s will.  There will be a thousand times more joy for you in doing things His way instead of demanding your own.
