Praying till we forget...

A few weeks ago, I went hiking with the kids, and when we were done, we were walking back to the car and Odin says to me, Aunt Mary, I was praying sooooooo hard at church on Sunday. I was just crying and speaking in tongues, he's like, did you see me Aunt Mary!?!?!?!? I was like, I DID see you, and you were praying very good!!!. 
He's like, yeah I was...then he kinda like GASPS and he says, I was praying soooooooo hard, I FORGOT to even ask God for a pet bird and a Tesla!!! 
Buuuuuuuuuuut it got me to thinking, no my nephew is not some kind of super spiritual kid, buuuuuuuuuut still, I can't help but think that is the very essence of what prayer is supposed to be...
To pray till our own desires are forgotten, 
because our own spirit is lost
 in God's desires!!!
" And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God." (Romans 8:27)
