I can't expect to get anything or anywhere without consistent prayer and thanksgiving with God. It is a life lesson to keep on my belt. I can't expect to know whether to go here or not go there without God's knowledge and understanding. I have to trust in Him with all my strength, and pray the Holy Spirit will work in me, mold me, use me. I can't discipline myself without the Lord's help; I can do nothing on my own initiative. 
This I pray, that I would find focus and the Lord's understanding for my daily life, and roles as a wife, daughter, sister, and friend. That I would be transformed into the likeness of the Lord, and not by my own accord. To be a prayer warrior, fighting sin, and feel urgency for these things. 

Philippians 4:4-8:

   4 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! 5 Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. 6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
   8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.
