Here's a piece of the whole article, which you can read here if you prefer :)
This week Franklin Graham (www.SamaritansPurse.org) and other national and international organizations issued special calls to prayer on Pastor Saeed’s behalf. In support of those requests and the multitude of needs in our world, an honest look at prayer weighs on my heart. Prayer is something we know we should do but like the father in scripture, sometimes we want to cry, “I believe, help me in my unbelief.” We know thousands prayed passionately for the ISIS captives recently murdered. We know millions have prayed, ‘thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven,’ yet we see evidence of God’s will not being done every day. Countering those dreary, seeming truths, we know Jesus promised, ‘Ask anything in my name and it will be done.’ In fact, His name is “Yes and Amen.” Our key, then, is to ask in His name and know that greater things are happening that what we see.

Ugh, it's been a week of realizing my limitations, and I confess again: I don't like it. I want to be accomplished and make folks happy, but it's not the job assignment I have...so, this is what God said to me as I choked back the tears of not being able to fix the things I want to...His greatness quiets my heart and brings me back to rejoicing :).
