Today I had a big prayer request for God. I had put off asking because so many other people seemed to have greater needs than mine. It was only when I heard the Spirit of God remind me that His word says that I have not because I don't ask, and when I ask I don't ask in the right way, with the right heart. So, I asked.
I'd like to say the answer has arrived with all the bells and whistles, but it hasn't, not yet, anyway. I am expecting an answer, even if it isn't exactly what my heart desires. I won't manipulate to get my own way. I won't "claim" my answer. I won't forget that God loves me and gives good gifts to His children. I asked. I told Him all that I wanted. Now I "Claim" who He is in my life and let Him be enough for me.
Abba Father, you are the giver of all good gifts. You are wise and all knowing. You are the only one who loves me perfectly, and in Your love I can be sure that You want to bless me with my hearts desires. I am selfish at times and I want so much. I know that in the world my prayer may be seen as too much, but I know You are able. Thank You for listening to my requests. Thank You for making plans to bless me. Thank You for being all I need. I know that You will supply all my needs according to Your riches. I need to hear Your voice and see You in every circumstance. I want to be in Your presence.
