Pretty much any conversation with God is a good idea, but if your prayers are mostly about your agendas, then you're missing out. Try this on for size:
God, please do whatever it takes for You to have more of me and grant me more of Your perspective. I'm surrendered to that process.
This prayer won't fix everything, in fact it will probably bring challenges, but I'm certain that it is in line with God's will for you.
If you don't really like that prayer, then begin to tell God why you don't like that prayer. That's a good prayer, too (in fact, when you hit the place where you find your soul resisting God, then that's where your prayers should begin).
