"God has no use for the prayer of the people that won't listen to Him" Prov 28:9 (Message)

Lord, give me a 20 ft by 20 ft hole.....

It may sound strange, but it's always my prayer: God let me fall into a 20 foot by 20 foot hole regarding this situation, something so deep I can't get out of without discovering Your Will. I don't remember how this prayer began, but it was definitely needed in every situation I seemed to find myself in. It seems that when I pray for something intently, I take everything that happens as evidence as for or against what I'm praying for and then have to doubt whether those pieces of 'evidence' are actually from God or just my own desire to find an answer. I have prayed this prayer about so many situations, and find its easier to recognize God's will this way! So, God, this is my prayer now. I know you have amazing plans for this semester and this summer, but I pray that you will let me fall into them. That you lead me to where You want me to be, and that no amount of doubting can get me out of it. Lead me with Your hands to wherever it is I need to be and into whatever decisions you have for me! God, I'm Yours. Let me surrender to Your will!
