What Should We Pray For?

What should we ask for each time we pause long enough to pray?
Should we ask for healing, or forgiveness, or an increase in pay?
Our attention is usually focused on the major problems of today.
But God sees our future and He knows everything that lies ahead in our way.
If we follow Jesus' example then at the end of each prayer we should say,
“Father, not my will, but Your will be done in my life each and every day.”
Then relax and trust God to answer your prayers in His own divine way.
And you will receive a special peace just knowing everything will be okay.
