[b]ASK FOR WISDOM[/b]
[i]If any of you who lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.
JAMES 1:5[/i]

Sometimes, I don't know how to pray. But I find that God will help me in this regard. He'll give me wisdom. When I feel uncertain about my motives or requests, I say, "God, this is my heart on the matter, and I'd really like you to do this. But if you have other plans, far be it from me to get in the way. You've asked me to make my request known, and that's what I'm doing. But if what I'm asking for isn't good gift, if the time isn't right, if i'm not ready to receive it, no problem. Your ways are higher than my ways, and your thoughts higher than my thoughts. If you have different plans, we'll go our way." It takes courage to submit to God, but he blesses us when we do.

How willing are you to pray like the one above? Are you willing to God's way, even when it seems different from what you want?

the power is in the one who hears our prayer,if the power was in what or how we pray,then it becomes performance,
