We should not be afraid, when praying to God, to give expression to a definite desire, even though we are in doubt at the time we are praying whether it is really the right thing to pray for or not. Regardless of this, we should pray for definite things, for those which we feel a strong desire to speak to our heavenly Father. But at the same time we should do as Jesus did and add, "Nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will."

Pray that you may become so confidential with Him that you can speak with Him about everything in your daily life. That is what He desires...Be sure to remember that nothing in your daily life is so insignificant and so inconsequential that the Lord will not help you by answering your prayer.

We fast in order to set our distracted and worldly-minded souls free for a time from preoccupation with material things and the distractions of our environment, giving the Holy Spirit an opportunity to search out our whole inner being and to speak with him about the things which are grieving the Spirit of prayer, in order to re-establish unhindered communication with the Holy Spirit and a greater influx of divine power.
