What About My Will?

As I was reading one of my daily reading from GoTandem it got me thinking.  It speaks to times when we pray for help or for God to do something miraculous but then go on to tell God to let his will be done.

She said when we do that, we pray in fear and not in faith.  It is like putting a disclaimer just in case we don’t get what we pray for we will feel better in knowing it may have been God’s will and not ours.

The bible tells us to pray the will of God in our lives and when we pray we should believe we are praying according to his will.  We should be cognizant of our motive for saying that phrase.  We should try to answer these questions.  Is it because we are not confident we will get what we ask for?  Is it that we believe we are praying the will of God?

Let us not pray in fear but in faith.
