"Not as I will"

We pray earnestly, pressing our very heart into the heavens, but it is for the doing of our own will that we ask, not for the doing of God's will. Is it the true child-spirit for us to insist on having our way with God, to press our will without regard to his ? Are we not God's children ? Is it not ours to learn obedience and submission in all things to him ?

No prayer is acceptable to God, which after all it's intensity and importunity, is still not referred to God and left to his superior wisdom. Who but he knows what is best for us ?
