Praying for the small, insignificant things in life is something about which most praying people have probably experienced inhibitions. In the same way we might feel bad for asking a number of small favors of a friend, sometimes we don't want to bother God going into a job interview or suffering a cold when there are people out there starving and dying.
While it's true we need to keep things in perspective, we must also remember a few things. For one, God is the master of multitasking. Time He spends nurturing and guiding us isn't going to take Him away from other people, and He won't tire of caring for us.
But most importantly, in praying for every detail in our lives, we are demonstrating our dependency on God. We need His help in everything we do, so that we are best able to serve Him and others. Praying for the details isn't complaining, or asking too much. It's fully surrendering ourselves to a higher purpose.
