Are We Praying For the Wrong Things?

How often do we pray for the Lord to change our circumstances, change our lives? We pray for a better car, job or house. We pray for health all of which are good things but maybe we need to pray for something more important. Maybe we need to pray for the Lord to change us. Give Him the permission to make us into the people He created us to be.
Pray to be changed by the Lord. Pray to be set free of the anger, resentment, prejudices and negativity that keep us from becoming the people He wants us to be. Pray to become more positive, to trust Him more to be more loving. Pray for a change in attitude, a change in expectations. Pray for a greater faith in Him in His love for You. Pray to really believe that He is a God of Infinite Love who wants what is best for us.
Pray to be set free of the fear and doubt that cripple us.
Pray for opportunities to be of service to Him and His Church. Pray for a greater love of the Sacraments. Pray to be changed every time you receive Communion. Pray for the grace to be generous. Pray to be set on fire with love for Him and His people. Pray to make a difference in the world for Him. Pray to grow more like Jesus!
