Jesus gives us the authority to approach God like His child. He is our Father who loves us. JP teaches us how we should pray — for God's agenda, our desires, His forgiveness, and our freedom. Prayer is expressing your desires while seeking God's agenda and aligning your heart with His. There is nothing wrong with asking God; in fact, God wants us to ask and seek Him, for His glory. It reflects a relationship and dependence on Him. Ultimately, our answered prayer is that we get more of God.
