In this edition of GRIFF’s prayer, he thanks God for saying no to us. Because sometimes, as he explains, we want the wrong things for ourselves, much like how kids want too much candy.

We might think we know what we need, and it later turns out to be a really good thing that our wishes weren’t granted. GRIFF reminds us of how grateful we should be that God looks out for us in this way. Click on the audio player to hear GRIFF‘s prayer now in this exclusive audio from “Get Up! Mornings With Erica.”
