And, be really careful how you phrase your request.
This is especially true when you are making that request to the Universe, God or whomever or whatever your higher power might be.
Whatever your prayer, there will always be an answer, even it the answer is "no."
I found out today that receiving a "no" in response is sometimes much better than the actual answer you receive. I managed to be presented with a solution and heartbreak in one, fell swoop.
