My prayers at times sounds like a shopping list of needs and then I stop! I explain to HIM what I need, why I need it and when I need it. Does this sound familiar or am I alone in this type of prayer?
And then a small voice says, “All you need is me. I am enough.”. And privately scold myself for being so needy when in reality I have everything I need. I may have a shopping list of things I want, and He will provide some of those but only God knows exactly what I need and when I need it. I’ve seen it happen over and over, I ask, He provides even if it doesn’t look exactly like what I thought I needed. He still provided.
So, I’ve decided it’s okay that I ask! Whether it’s a need or a want, He just wants me to talk with Him. A simple conversation, just as I do with all my other friends. He knows that I’m thinking even before I speak, so why not speak.
So ask Him! Don’t worry about all the fine details, He will sort through them and give you exactly what you need.
