I could not face my troubles and blessings without my connection to Him in prayer, my life would be pointless and empty. I go to Jesus for it all, in times of sorrow, in times of joy and in times of waiting for an answer.
Pray not because you need something but because you have a lot to thank God for. Thank God for what He'll do. Even if our prayers haven't been answered yet God either has something better in mind and He has the perfect timing.
When God knows ready for the responsibility of commitment, reveal the person under the right circumstances. waste your time wishing. Grow and be ready, see God will give you a life story far better than you could ever dream of!
