Expecting the Wrong Answer

Sometimes people will say things like, " Your prayers did not work, but thanks," as if a person could be praying for only one thing, maybe a miracle or a cure.

Sometimes we simply ask for God's mercy, "Let me friend die at home, Lord, and not in the hospital." "Let her go quickly, God, and with her loved ones present."

Sometimes all we ask is "Lord, what is it you want of me?"

Sometimes we have to ask "Please change me in ways I cannot imagine." Sometimes when prayer seems unanswered, it's because you are expecting an answer and don't see the real answer.
