The most simple rule for good prayer is honesty and humility. One can never go wrong with those two. Talk honestly to God. Don’t give God the self you think you’re supposed to be. Give God yourself in your nakedness, who you really are, even if that means giving God your anger or distractions.
Never envy the wicked! Soon they fade away like grass and disappear. Trust in the Lord instead. Be kind and good to others; then you will live safely here in the land and prosper, feeding in safety.
The Living Bible
It is not your responsibility to explain what God is doing with your life. He has not provided enough information for you to figure it out. Instead, you are asked to turn loose and let God be God.
