Our Prayers Being Taken Into Account

This is an encouragement to me as I often wrestle with God's sovereignty and my praying to Him. It comes from Letters to Malcolm by C.S. Lewis.
“To think of our prayers as just ‘causes’ would suggest that the whole importance of petitionary prayer lay in the achievement of the thing asked for. But really, for our spiritual life as a whole, the ‘being taken into account,’ or ‘considered,’ matters more than the being granted.”
As I lay in my bed last night, I was humbled by this fact: that the great and holy God of the universe actually listens to what this sin-stained heart speaks. Pretty cool.
