But I pray to you, Lord in the time of your favor; in your great love, O God, answer me with your sure salvation. - Psalm 69:13
Not every day unfolds as we hope or plan. In fact, there are times when it seems the darkness just will not leave. In your dark hours, pray to God with the expectation of salvation from your need.
No, you can't dictate how God will deliver you in the way you want Him to deliver you. However, you can pray for eyes to see him in all circumstances
God's response may not be exactly how you imagined - so leave room for Him to do His work in you, around you, and through you.
