I've heard someone say that prayer without expectation is just unbelief in disguise. I think it's quite natural for us to feel that the picture is so big that my little problem isn't worth divine intervention, but we're not asked to think that way at all.
"But as for me, I will look to the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me." Micah 7:7 (ESV)The confidence in Micah is a goal for where I want to be at in my journey; sitting there, amidst a mess, knowing in my heart that He 'will' hear me.
Father help me to slow down, speak less, and listen more. Help me expect your blessings, support, and guidance with as much eagerness as a child has as he sees candles being lit for him on a cake!
Your baby boy,
