Here's a post I found today that I'd love feedback on, it will most likely have plenty of response there but I wanted to share it here too: http://www.eliyah.com/forum2/Forum10/HTML/004412.html It's about prayer and how we think of it. I agree with the article author for the most part.
Perhaps that's why all my prayers go something like this: You know I want this to happen but of course I don't know all the ramifications if it does. You may have put me in this situation because of what I'll need in the future or because someone else needs me here. If you allow what I ask it may be totally wrong, I may regret it horribly, someone may suffer needlessly because of it. Basically Father, I have no clue, not the slightest inkling of what's best, I can't read the future so ... so just never mind.
It always ends up with me asking for help to stay close enough to Him that I only want what He wants whether I want it or not!
