Supplication means to ask with humility in prayer. It is important to remember to give first to God what he deserves: Praise! Then you might consider asking for forgiveness and allowing him to cleanse you before you ask for anything else. It seems like the only times we really pray to God is when we need him do do something for us. Build a stronger relationship with him by respecting him, honoring him, and learning more about him. You will be surprised at his eagerness to love you back with his blessings.
