Is prayer about getting what we want?

True prayer is a growing and profound understanding of God’s true nature as divine Love.

The east coast of the United States had been hit hard by a powerful hurricane, and a huge tree had crashed onto my house, damaging it substantially. As soon as the storm abated, family and neighbors helped me take steps to prevent further damage and to contact a familiar and trusted contractor. Repairs began quickly, but soon all work stopped. My contractor had been injured and was unable to work, and major roadwork on my street made it difficult for workers to even reach the house. As the days dragged into weeks, I became frustrated over the delay and angry about pressure from others to hire a different contractor to finish the work.

However, a transformation from frustration and anger to prayer and patience began in church one Sunday morning.
