Not My Will
Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done (LUKE 22:42)
What is the hidden agenda in your prayers? Are you praying for God to save your marriage to avoid humiliation? Are you asking for physical healing because you’re tired of feeling bad? Are you asking for a better job because you want more prestige?
James 4:3 says, “When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives.” When we pray, He wants us to search our hearts for hidden motives — not just in praying for ourselves, but in praying for others. Why are we really asking for help? If your marriage is broken, if your finances are depleted, if your children are turning their backs on you and God — what is it that you truly want from God? Tell Him what you want. Then qualify your prayer, as Jesus did, with “Thy will be done” (Matthew 6:10 KJV).
