It’s okay to not know.
When I pray my kids to come to know and follow Jesus, I’m not sure how that works. Am I praying that they’ll be restored? Or just come to find him fresh? Not sure. So I ask God, “however that works.”
Or when we pray that all the lines in our month, like money or time or promises we’ve made, will meet up in the end–it’s not always clear how that’s going to work. So we can just ask God, “however that works.”
The point is, God knows how it works.
And really, that’s all that matters.
