My God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer, by night, but I find no rest.
One reason for a “dry” or unsatisfactory prayer life is that we keep the focus on ourselves. That’s a mistake, because our emotions, our circumstances, the good days and the bad days, can change every day.But God is unchanging. He is constant. Instead of regarding Him as a genie at our ever-changing command, we need to think of ways to honor and serve Him. Our prayers are a way to seek out His will; that’s why we pray that His will, not our will, be done.
