Praying for Important Needs

Recently I was praying for some important needs to be met.  I prayed that they would be met according to God’s Will.  But I think we should take it back one or two steps.  If I have turned my will and my life over to the care of God, then I turned my needs over to God.  I no longer should pray that my needs be met, but rather ask for a knowledge from God about what needs he plans fulfill.

It is a dynamic switch in thinking.   We are open vessels for God to use.   All the worrying and greed will slip away.  Peace and serenity will begin to take over our mind.  I am not trying to imply that we will become zombies. 

What I am talking about is an overall signing over of ownership of my life to God.  I then come to God not to ask but to submit to His Guidance.  We are now caretakers of our lives.  We are trusted stewards of God.

Then if I want that relationship or possession, I can come to God and ask for His Guidance.  Then we don’t have to worry, but we can be of service to God and others.
