Sometimes when I ask for what I want, I feel that I have let go of my faith, which 'should' be Thy will be done. Then I say to myself, "Oh, what a mess you are making of this. Get out of your head!" On it goes. Well, at least God is present. So why not thank God for that?
And then there is St. Paul's Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5.17), which suggests many possibilities and freeing me up to keep praying.
