Luke 11: 5-13
Effective prayer leaves room for God to be God. It takes a courageous disciple to reveal one’s deepest needs, even to the Lord. Being vulnerable is never easy. In prayers of petition, God grants what we need when we dare to ask . Oftentimes, though what we need differs from what we want.
O God, hear my prayer. As you incline your ear to me, incline my heart to you. Make me docile to what you offer.
