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.
