“Lord, please make it easy for (…you fill in the blank…) to happen. In the name of Jesus I ask and thank you.” How simple! Just give me my way! How many times have I prayed for something that is not God’s plan? Am I praying for what is needed?
I desperately want an easy life for the people I love. I want security for the old people and pure and holy adventure for the youth. I want power for my country. I want freedom of pain for the hurting. I want saints to go home on the wings of peaceful sleep. I want good-paying, fulfilling jobs for all men and women who are willing to work hard. I want those who won’t work to realize they are wasting God-given lives and to get off their haunches and find jobs. I want the southern border closed. I want North Korea to be nice. I want rain.
