There is a beautiful promise in Psalm 37: Delight yourself also in the Lord; and He shall give You the desires of Your heart (v.4). It is, perhaps, legitimate to translate this as meaning not only the fulfillment of our desires, but even the inspiration of our desires, the in-breathing of God's thoughts into us so that our prayers shall be in accord with His will and bring back to us the unfailing answer of His mighty providence.
Teach me Your thoughts, 0 God! Show me Your divine plan; Save me from all my plans and works, And lead me into Your's.
Delight yourself in the Lord and He shall give you the desires of your heart.
