We live in a world of changing and unchanging circumstances, but I believe that God has given each of us the ability to be joyful in everything. What areas of my life am I always complaining or grumbling about? I can change them.

Then Mark applied the above to a specific situation.  
1.  He asked God to show him what "had him so bummed"
2.  He wrote down the specific situation
3.  He admitted he had been complaining and grumbling
4.  He acknowledged that the situation was not within his control to change and that God had put him in it
5.  He thanked God for the good things in the situation 
6.  He asked for what he wanted and told God what he hoped would change
7.  He then prayed for other people related to the situation
8.  He asked for what he needed if the situation didn't change
