Jesus prays, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for you… Yet not what I will, but what you will.”
One of the hardest things to do is pray that something you’ve held close to your heart doesn’t happen. A business venture, a relationship, a large purchase, something that you’ve been working hard toward. To pray that God’s will is done is the ultimate in letting go of the wheel, and it’s hard! But isn’t that what following Christ is all about? It’s part of growing in our faith and focusing on things eternal.
