This week, our Wi-Fi went down, so I prayed that it would be restored quickly.
God suggested that I learn patience instead.
I then prayed that some of the challenges in my life would disappear.
He thought that learning resilience and persistence would be a good idea.
I wanted Him to remove temptation from my life so that I could better focus on being pure and noble.
He recommended that I try self-control.
I prayed that He would smite my enemies and deal with those who have let me down.
He answered by reminding me of the values of love and forgiveness.
I asked Him to make my children less annoying and my wife more understanding.
God laughed kindly and offered to equip me to be a better father and husband.
I asked Him to make life less complicated.
He reminded me to pursue wisdom instead.
I prayed for answers to the big questions.
He gave me faith to deal with the unknown.
I prayed for what I wanted.
God gave me what I needed.
I prayed for a more convenient, comfortable world.
God transformed me into a better man.
