James tells us that when we pray, we often ask and do not receive because our asking is flawed by our self-willed agendas (James 4:3) We must be completely open to whatever the will of God may be. Our prayer and our commitment must be in the spirit of the biblical metaphor that teaches us to essentially pray: "You are the Potter, I am the clay. Mold me and make me according to Your will. I am waiting and ready to accept Your will as passively as clay in the hands of a potter" (Romans 9:20,21)
