So you are saying to pray generally and not specifically God's will?
Isn't that what Christ showed us to do?
"Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven"
Isaiah 55 does a pretty good job of telling us that God's ways and thoughts are higher than ours.
We can, even should, pour our hearts out to God, asking Him for specific requests, but then also realize that because His ways are higher than ours, His will might be going another direction than our prayers right now, or He may want to grant it, but not in our timing or...there are a thousand different reasons we can't seem to get Him to jump through our hoops, and give us everything we request; even *if* we are sure its within His general will for it to be so; so we then, after pouring our hurts, desires, requests out to Him, say like Christ did in the garden, "yet, not my will, but Yours be done."
If we are submitted to God, believing His plans for us are best, we can pray that way (His will be done)...its hard, it hurts, its confusing when He doesn't see fit to give us our good, reasonable, even righteous requests; but that's when our faith kicks in and we say "I trust You in this, come what may, Your will be done".
