Praying for answers is ultimately about answers - in all simplicity - and
therefore it turns out that we tend to think about praying for answers in a way we can
understand. God being invisible so lets us think about ways to bid for something visible.
The closest solution to that were to be asking for answers through Dreams.
"If you believe that you'll get what you're asking for you'll get it" (Jesus).
This is important - yet, more importantly there is an 'if'. Now, I used to pray for answers
a lot - and that mostly because somewhere deep inside I felt like I was wrong in some way.
I wanted God to however confirm that what I believed is right - and that biased me to the
point that I was entirely incapable of dealing with an opposed answer. And for the time
being ... the way I've been on was right enough. Right to the point that I eventually figured
out where I was wrong - in a way that ultimately turned all the questions I had 'meaningless'.
When 'asking' you should keep a close mind on how you feel. The divine has a way of making
itself recognizable to you - and Gods answers do come to us eventually - even before we're
Praying the Lords prayer can condition us to that point of 'easiness' - saying - 'thy will
be done' - saying, when cycnical, as much as: "I can't force you to do it any other way
Of all the dreams I asked for, there was one request that got answered - as far as I can
tell - and that because the dream contained stuff that later however became real. Yet, at
the time I woke from it - it yet first of all allowed me to understand it my way (wrongly)
- while being otherwise full of stuff that wouldn't make sense until some of the things had
happened. And while asking for it - I felt that the prayer would be answered for I really
needed something of a guidance. Yet so the dream wasn't really as useful. So I came later
at some point back to doing so - wanting a bit more clarification - and while the dream didn't
really clarify anything, except pointing out that I tend to break what I build (which isn't
really helpful for I never wanted to break anything, but OK), I ... recognized ... yea - its
possibly right to just ... move on.
This isn't meant for you to trust me - but, keep this on mind. If you so have an answer through
a dream that tells you something wrong, ... well, who am I to tell you that you're wrong?! But
there's an easy way out ... which is, 'wiggling yourself into error'. If you can get a contradicting
answer - you're "screwed" - in that you then can no longer tell yourself right from wrong. On the
less ... problematic end of things, you can think about it - think about right and wrong - and ask
God whether or not 'this' interpretation is correct. Its one step forward in that you start to take
less for granted and do more seriously work on a living relationship.
