I wanted to ask other Christians about this, but never felt comfortable as it seems out of the norm.
It's not that I don't pray. In fact I make it a point to lead my new wife in prayer every night, and I have grown to really enjoy it and she has too. It's an awesome experience to share this together. I also pray at other times through the day (especially at night).
The trouble I have is that I do not want to "ask" God for anything in my prayers. I know God is capable of granting anything, but I feel selfish in asking for anything. I believe God has given us so much, especially the gift of eternal life, how can I ask for anything more, especially as seeing that our time her on earth is so limited.
My prayers consist of praise and thanksgiving.
What are your thoughts. Thanks!
