I want . . . LORD.

I was praying about a number of burdens recently. I found myself saying “Lord, I don’t want this for myself” as if the act of intercession was a selfish act. I wasn’t praying for the request for me. I was asking for something for another. Then I got to thinking that maybe the request really was something I wanted. And upon self reflection, I did want the request for myself. Then I was thinking of Jesus’ prayer in the garden and I thought not my will . . . But He was asking for . . . 

Anyway, here’s my plan, I’m going to pray. I’m going to expect God to act. I’m not going to expect Him to do it in my time. Or handle it my way. Finally, I’m going to trust Him for the results.
