I had to ask this after reading the response from another member in a different thread regarding prayer. When is prayer not warranted? When should we just throw up our hands and admit the situation is too difficult for us, so it must be too difficult for God, so we just let it be? I happen to see prayer and the time for prayer is not just when it is safe to pray. I pray for the little things as well as the impossible. And by impossible I am not saying to pray for a new Mercedez. Or a million dollar lotto win. I am talking about praying for the the kind of things that will bring God the glory when the answer comes. What are your thoughts on this attitude towards prayer? Are we supposed to access the situation and let that accessment determine what we pray for as well as how we pray?
