“When praying for support, bring yourself in—into the asking, into the inquiry at that Spirit doorway—bring that feeling that something is at stake. You’re not in a place of responsibility for the outcome. You’re in a place of deep surrender and humble participation with what Is.
“Identify this presence for yourself: there’s something missing. Pray in the presence of the missing. You want some guidance, some help for that possibility that is needed, beyond the wanting, that something is about to be missed or lost unless assistance arrives. Ask for relief or guidance to obtain the missing, to engage the missing.
“That’s the proper relationship.”
