Should we pray for small inconsequential things too or just for big things?
God wants us to pray for all things big and small and is offended if we don’t. His powers are not limited by time or space and He can take care of everyone’s requests.
For example you lost your keys somewhere and can’t find them. After looking for them everywhere and trying to figure out where they could be, you start getting desperate and think whether you should ask God to help you find them.
Since you are desperate and losing hope, you will have real earnestness in your prayer and God always listens to people when they are in need.
You will find your keys where you least expected them to be.
Who answers the distressed person when he calls upon Him?
