The paraphrase Graham Cooke, the core of prayer is the relationship, not the asking. Yes, God is very interested in your need, but He is more interested in you. James 4:3 says that we ask for things and don’t get them because we’re not asking right. If Jesus is your Advocate with the Father, that means that He is interceding for you. About what? What exactly is He asking the Father for on your behalf? If you figure out what that is and pray with Him, then you have a certainty of seeing that prayer answered. He knows what you need better than you do. Quiet your spirit. Listen. Ask the Holy Spirit to lead you in your prayers and don’t be surprised or offended by where He takes you.
