Praying about trials!

Spurgeon, "Prayer Perfumed with Praise"

We should have faith enough to believe that the present trouble,
about which we are praying, is sent to us in love by God.

We should pray concerning our trials in this way--
"Lord, I have this thorn in the flesh. I beseech you, deliver me
from it, but meanwhile I bless you for it; for though I do not
understand the why or the wherefore of it, I am persuaded there
is love within it. Therefore, while I ask you to remove it, so far as
it seems evil to me, yet wherein it may to your better knowledge
work for my good, I bless you for it, and I am content to endure
it so long as you see fit."
