    If you have been a Christian for at least a decade and prayer is-- or at least has been-- a significant part of your life as a believer, is it the same as it was 10 years ago? In what ways? as the poll will accept multiple options.

    I have learned over the past few years that God actually wants us to ask for what we want. Even while knowing he was going to give Bartemaeus his sight, he still made him ask for it.

    I have learned God will give us what we ask if it is according to his will, so we don't have to tell God that qualifier. We ask, God answers--sometimes yes, sometimes no, sometimes not now.

    I used to be afraid to pray very specifically about things, but not anymore.
