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.
"Please don't nag yourself with thoughts of failure don't set goals far beyond your capacity to achieve, simply do what you can do in the best way you know how and the Lord will accept your effort." -Gordon B.
the only way to succeed is to not worry about what anyone else is doing. free your mind, live your life for yourself, get rid of everyone's expectations what you should or should not do.let go and live for yourself and your own goals.
