So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.-Luke 11:9 

“What do you want me to pray Lord?” A phrase I tend to repeat in prayer and sometimes tend to feel stupid when doing so. I get so overwhelmed by everything I want to talk to God about, when sometimes it honestly feels like I am talking to a wall. Haven’t we all been there?

Sometimes prayer becomes a check off my to-do list, making prayer speeches to God and ignoring the intimacy that I have waiting for me from the Lord. But the thing is, Jesus wants us to ask Him what to pray.

Often I find myself continually praying for a specific answer or topic, wondering why God isn’t responding to me. Later to find, He is usually telling me 1. To wait, or 2. To ask Him a different question. Often, God is wanting to speak to me on a completely different area in my life than I keep asking Him. When we pray, we need to stop and ask him, “Lord, what do you want me to speak to you about right now?” If we just simply pray according to God’s will, he will hear us and answer our prayers. We need to surrender, just like the disciples did, when asking God to teach them how to pray. In the end, His ways are always better than our own.
