Prayer

Have you ever given something to someone that you should not have given them? 

God cannot misrepresent Himself by hurting you and others of you. If you are asking for something that will help you misrepresent Him and in so doing hurt you and others of you it is my belief that He will not give it to you. 

If you know God better and are enabled to trust Him to provide for you, you will probably not ask for as many things as you will "know" He has already provided them. 

I believe if your motivation becomes to represent God in everything you say and do you will receive what is needed for you to be all you were made to be than if you are continually misrepresenting Him and "praying continually". 

Therefore I believe one of the main things a person should ask God for is to help them want to change direction in those area(s) of life they are misrepresenting Him in. 

Psalm 51:10 Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

2 Chronicles 6:36

 

36 “When they sin against you—for there is no one who does not sin—and you become angry with them and give them over to the enemy, who takes them captive to a land far away or near; 37 and if they have a change of heart in the land where they are held captive, and repent and plead with you in the land of their captivity and say, ‘We have sinned, we have done wrong and acted wickedly’; 38 and if they turn back to you with all their heart and soul in the land of their captivity where they were taken, and pray toward the land you gave their ancestors, toward the city you have chosen and toward the temple I have built for your Name; 39 then from heaven, your dwelling place, hear their prayer and their pleas, and uphold their cause. And forgiveyour people, who have sinned against you.
