Is it possible some of our prayers go unanswered because we are praying out of a sense of obligation or maybe for the wrong things? Are our prayers supposed to be a list of things we want, or are they really intended to be an ongoing dialogue with God about the things He wants? Maybe if we align our prayers with God's mission, we would see God answer our prayers in supernatural ways that we could never imagine.
Why does it seem like reading the Bible is more of a duty than a privilege? Do we get the idea that we should read the Bible because it's the thing to do, or is there something more to it?
