"When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not have a single
bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used
everything you gave me'"

Pray and Expect
Psalm 5:3 (New International Version)
In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.
Thoughts: Have you prayed for something and doubted if God would answer it? All of us are guilty of that in some way. But our attitude in prayer should be with expectation. Free online dictionary defines expectation as "eager anticipation." We should anticipate that God is going to answer our prayers. I believe this anticipation includes faith.
Hebrews 11:3 (New Living Translation) says, "Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see."
Hebrews 11:6 (New International Version) says "And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him."
