Sometimes I’m reluctant to pray
As I feel the situation is so trivial it will work itself out
And I want to use praying energy for things that seem like they’re hard
But recently I found myself having to do a “trivial” prayer
The deadline to the airport was near and I just had to be there

There was only one road to the airport and a car covered every inch of it
The possibility of missing the plane grew real by every minute
Another plane wouldn’t come for another day
And I couldn’t stand an overnight stay
As I was so ready to leave that land the previous day

So as traffic inched along the way
I didn’t want to bother God, but I knew no other way
I began to pray, telling Him I didn’t want to stay
Thereafter, traffic didn’t move much faster
But it moved fast enough to barely catch the plane
Thank You Jesus, bless Your name.
Insight
Is anything too hard for the Lord? (Genesis 18:14) for most of us that would be an easy no. But is anything so trivial or easy that we shouldn’t bring it to the Lord? Some of us may wrestle with this question. I know for me if I feel something is simple or it will work itself out; I may not pray about it. But big problems are the result of small problems going unattended. The Lord never said not to ask Him for small or trivial things. In Philippians 4:6 it says “be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God”.
