What are some helps to doubting while in prayer. The service this past Sunday was on James 1:5-8. I've noticed that it is very hard for me to believe that I will receive whatever I pray for. Are we only to pray for what God has already promised? I get stuck in the mindset that the Lord has no need to do anything for me and that all things are for my good so perhaps I need to grow in contentment of my current circumstance rather than pray for them to change. What are some helps against this mindset and the discouragement that follows as a result?
