While asking God to take it away seems reasonable enough; what if He doesn't? What if He says, "My grace is sufficient for you" and then, like Paul the thorn in the flesh remains. Paul told Timothy to take a little wine for his stomach. He didn't tell Timothy to just pray it away or ask God to take it away and then expect it to be gone. I have prayed at the bedside of a dying woman who was given hours to live and she was back in church within three weeks. I have prayed at the side of dying woman and she died that day. Some things, like sickness and death really lie in the will of God and we will have to learn to live with that will. Nothing has helped me so much as just being honest that I have an illness that God has left me with and He, in His divine wisdom, gave men medical knowledge to help me suffer less, a fact for which I do praise God.Why not ask God to take it away? Why ask for strength to endure an ailment that has come from the devil? Pray to remove the root of the problem, not the symptom. Those who are filled with the HS are doing themselves a disservice if they are not using the Grace that's been given to them.
