St. Teresa of Avila once said, “There are more tears shed over answered prayers than over unanswered prayers.” What in the world could she have meant by that? Exactly what she said. God has a perfect will for our lives. Do our prayers change His will? That’s a good question. But we often pray for what we think is in our best interests, when God has something else completely in mind for us. As a loving Father, he will at times give us what we ask for. On occasion, we live to regret making those requests. Has this ever happened to you?
