Paragraph 2736

2736. Are we convinced that “we do not know how to pray as we ought”?23Are we asking God for “what is good for us”? Our Father knows what we need before we ask him,24but he awaits our petition because the dignity of his children lies in their freedom. We must pray, then, with his Spirit of freedom, to be able truly to know what he wants.25
