Wanting What We Get


It’s amazing to me how elite athletes stay focused on their game despite the distractions all around them, or how actors and artists keep their focus on their craft and avoid distractions.

It’s a great testimony of how focus leads to the end result.

Spiritually speaking, we have the same opportunity with our focus.

Practice in prayer over the years has taught me that when I focus my prayer life on being in tune with God’s will for the person, place, or thing I am praying for...

I get the blessing to be free from praying to GET what I WANT and instead I have the Spirit, heart, and mind to WANT what I GET from my prayers.

How’s this working out for you?

Check your experience…

“praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.” Big Book pg 59

Lord. Let us pray to want what we get instead of praying to get what we want, AMEN.

“Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion.” Ephesians 6:18

Have a blessed day y’all!
