Do you pray to get what you want? There are plenty of Bible verses to support this position, and many Christians make it their primary focus in prayer. Have you tried this yourself? How did it work out for you? Is there another way? Another approach to prayer is to make yourself present and aware, that you may see what I am already doing. I am already involved in whatever you are concerned about. If you see it you can understand the direction your prayers should take. So this is not a passive and indifferent approach. Prayers that you know are according to my will have greater focus and fervency.
