Pray from a position of love and trust rather than from a position of fear. From this position we are able to focus on His sufficiency, His nature and His ability to rescue rather than our fear and insufficiency. Thank God for what you want out of trust for who He is, rather than asking and begging. Begging is telling God that He does not love you enough to answer your prayer-you are scared that He is not hearing you, so you have to beg. Being motivated by fear and selfish ambition keeps us focused on ourselves and our situations rather than on God and His possibilities.
