Something I learnt last night.

About prayer.

To many, the act of praying can sometimes mislead us into subconsciously presenting a wish list to our God.

But in fact, it never should be that way. Praying is supposed to be an act of faith. An act to build a relationship with our Creator. To know that He is in control. To know that He is God – and a Mighty One indeed. Far greater than the things that concerns us in our earthly life.

Because our stories are already written in His books. Because only He knows what is best for us. What is our wish list, compared to His plans for us written in His books?

His ways are indeed higher than our ways.

And the best prayers are praying for His will to be done in our lives.

Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
