And this is the confidence that we have before him: that whenever we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in regard to whatever we ask, then we know that we have the requests that we have asked from him.

Prayer

Father, teach me to be devoted to prayer by mindful focus on giving thanks to you. Remind me that what looks right to me may not be right at all. Let your character be glorified by my petitions. Remind me that it is I that stretches the bonds of our relationship, but you have not changed nor pulled away from me in the slightest. Through your word I have my perfect answer to all of life's questions. Teach me to rejoice in hope, endure in suffering and persist in prayer. Lord, I come before you to ask for your perfect justice in my life. For it is to you that we all one day must come. All praise and honor to you, the God most high, who has listened and heard my sincere prayer lifted to your thrown in the name of my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, Amen.

"Remind me that it is I that stretches the bonds of our relationship, but you have not changed nor pulled away from me in the slightest."

..."what looks right to me"...
yes, our perspective is often one sided and tainted.

Thank you Chris
