"THY WILL BE DONE"

It has been truly said that in the proportion that we know God aright do we know how to pray aright. The Bible warns against praying amiss; yet we often do so simply because of our own ignorance of what God is. In the early dawn of our reflection of divine light, we see only dimly and with simple faith. Perhaps we see God as a person who is far off, immeasurably distant from our own little selves. How can our pleadings be heard, we may think, by a God so widely separated from our tiny world?

Again we may sometimes find ourselves groping in a cloud of doubt as to the very existence of a Supreme Being and refrain from prayer for that reason. Or we may pray that what we humanly desire may come to pass, but time goes on and we see no tangible result. We forget the prerequisite, namely that in order to pray aright, we must pray that God's will be done.
