Title: Never mind
Post by: Richard OFfill on January 12, 2020, 06:48:28 PM
In our prayers, motive is everything. The problem of unanswered prayer is usually of our own making. I am sure that often God doesn't answer our prayers because our motives aren't at the level of what we are praying for. If God answered prayers that were motivated by pride, selfishness, or bitterness, He would, in effect, be aiding and abetting our sins.

I have found it helpful when making a request to God, not just to pray that this or that will happen but actually explain to God why I am making that particular request. I don't do this to help Him understand but to better understand the request myself. I must confess that more than once when I've finished telling Him why I want Him to do something, I end up saying, "Never mind!"

God, thy will be done not mine.
