This is a nice article on prayer and here is the takeaway quote for me: “’The Christian’s relationship to God is like that of a little child to a kind Father.

But he will answer the child’s requests according to his own wisdom, not the child’s — and therefore all the more lavishly.’” From Pierce Taylor Hibbs…………………….
