Kindred,


If you have to ask for something in prayer, ask not for results, like getting a job, but for the courage to go through the process of finding a job or the ability to meet your challenges and pass your test of character.


Know that sometimes your desires do not match the Lord's Design.


Therefore, it is important to keep in mind what you are to be doing for the Lord, not just for yourself.


It is also important to be able to receive the Lord's answers to your prayers, not just the ask.


For example, if you are ill with sickness, you can ask for the Lord to heal you, however, in order for the Lord's healing to reach beyond the material barriers of flesh, selfish desires and other distractions, the Holy Spirit must be able to reach you to heal you.  


It is also easier to feel the Lord's directions as instruments of peace rather than hate.  


Hate overwhelms any connection to self, humanity and the Lord.


In serenity, you can receive the Lord's wisdom and the healing of the Holy Spirit in peace.
