Aren’t these our typical prayers:”Lord I need…, Please give me…, Help me….?”
But what does God want? How will we ever know if we never ask Him?
Our prayers are often selfish. Even when are praying for others, we sill are thinking about ourselves. “Let quickly get through my prayer list so that I can pray for myself”.
Instead we should be asking God: “What do you want from me? What do you need me to do? How can I live to glorify you?”
Our prayers are not about our wants and needs. Our prayers should be about getting to know the will of God and His plans for our lives.
