Jesus said "I can do nothing on my own authority. I judge only as God tells me, so my judgment is right, because I am not trying to do what I want, but only what he who sent me wants." in John verse 30.
The part about "I am not trying to do what I want, but only what he who sent me wants." is the part that I pray that I can practice in my life. I know what God wants. God wants to save all people our their sinful selves, and God firsts wants to save me, cleanse me, bless me, and have a relationship with me, and to pour his love onto me for me to pour onto others. When this becomes difficult to do is when my relationship with Jesus is weak such that his love cannot flow freely onto me and onto others. That's when I feel spiritually hungry, and start to feel unsatisfied and selfish. But I know the answer to this problem, and that is to eat the bread of life, which is to read the bible and to pray.
Application: go to morning prayer tomorrow
