Prayer that is pleasing to God has a refreshingly different focus. No longer is my "want-to-have" the center of my prayer. Instead, God becomes central. That is the crucial and all-important point. Prayer that is pleasing to God recognizes God as a faithful friend whose companionship I seek because He is important to me, not because I want something from Him.
More important than anything I can ask for is my desire to be with Him. The time I spend with Him is precious - because He is precious to me. I can confide everything to Him. He understands me. He loves me tenderly. He wants to be with me. I long to be with Him. That is the center of true prayer.
