It is enough. Sometimes I pray for something I want, but don’t necessarily need. If I don’t get it I might grow impatient and I wonder if it will ever materialize, then later, begin to worry it will not. Michael Jordan once said that his failures were as important to his growth as his successes. Failure, obstacles, disappointments, and rejections test character and resolve. They also teach patience and prod us to reevaluate our efforts.
And what if God simply says “No” to what I pray for?

"Content. That’s the word. A state of heart in which you would be at peace if God gave you nothing more than he already has.”This Thanksgiving I give thanks to God for all my blessings and I pray for the serenity and wisdom to recognize those blessings every day and be content.
