Father, it is interesting (and somewhat surprising) to learn that not all prayers are pleasing to You, especially when they come from selfish motives and ambitions.  At the Garden of Gethsemane, in Christ's grief, He prayed for a different outcome.  But then he said to the Father, "Not my will but Yours be done." Teach me this kind of humility and trust in You that leads to true freedom. 

James 4:2-3 (ERV) – “You don’t get what you want because you don’t ask God. Or when you ask, you don’t receive anything because the reason you ask is wrong. You only want to use it for your own pleasure.”
