Prayer should be the place where our self-centeredness is cured.  For some it is the place you go to tell God all the things He should be doing for you and yours.  We are certainly invited to make our request know to God, but requesting is only one small part of prayer.  Praise Him!  Adore Him!  Thank Him!  Be totally with Him!  Sit with Him as you would a good Friend!  Listen!  Enjoy Him!  Welcome Him with open arms!

“My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to you– I, whom you have redeemed.” Psalms 71:23 (NIV)
