    You are more than welcome. I know for me I never thought about praying this way. But when I was in my 20’s I learned about what happens to a person when they are desperate for an answer from God. I remember reading about Hannah and how she pleaded to God. That is when I said “if she did it and God answered her prayer surely, He will answer mine.
