Question: Often I resist praying for things that seem superficial, material, or monetary. Is that wrong?
Answer: Possibly. Jesus said to pray for our daily bread or necessities. But He does not consider anything that matters to us as trivial. Now it may be that you need to talk to Him about what seems superficial or material to you and hear Him say to your soul that it is superficial or material and that you can spend your energy on better things. But you miss that opportunity if you don’t talk to Him about it.
