Often when we start out in our journey of faith and trust in the Lord our focus of prayer is our specific personal needs.
Now there is nothing wrong with telling God our own personal needs, but God has a bigger than that. As we grow in out relationship with God and focus on Him we find that it isn't always so important to "get our needs net." But rather what is important to God becomes important to us----
And we discover as we pray that our focus slowly changes to praying about others and other things that God lays on our hearts-----and maybe we aren't praying quite so much for "our specific needs" but as we walk with God, we discover that God is definitely taking care of those as well....because He truly cares for us!
