We do that once and a while, but less is better. Now take a minute and look back and you can see where God was telling you to pray one way about this or that, and you prayed another. Even while you were praying, you could sense that what you were asking for didn't seem right, but it sounded like the right thing to pray for, or it was what you thought you wanted. You need to follow the Spirit's leading. You need to quit trying to please men or say things to be heard. God is looking for you to pray with wisdom."
