You have a great idea. Talk to your spiritual advisor about it, just as you’ve been thinking of doing.
I must say, though, sometimes it is when God chooses to deny us that He really is most building our faith. When we are younger in faith and less spiritually developed, He often gives us whatever we ask for in order to develop our trust in Him. Then, when He sees we have grown, He causes us to go through unanswered prayer, dryness, or suffering, because He can trust us more. When we go through that dryness, it forces us to just surrender to His will more perfectly, putting our wills second to His and thus conforming us to His plan. When we have to reach the point of love where we will put what He wants above what we want, this is the time of growing perfection. Before we reach that point, the Lord often graciously gives us whatever we ask for. One of my friends at my local parish told me that when he first came to know the Lord, he received lots of spiritual experiences and every prayer he prayed was answered. Then, when through this he learned to trust the Lord better, the Lord withdrew, made him suffer, and denied him answers to prayers. He told me that times of difficulty are the times when God causes us to grow in Him most splendidly of all. The saints and scriptures teach the same message.
Imagine a mother who nurses her child. When her child is newborn, she takes care of all her needs. She babysits him, she changes his diapers, she feeds him, she does everything for him and he has no needs she doesn’t satisfy. Then, when he starts to get older, his mother withdraws from him a little. She lets him toddle on his feet as he learns to walk without holding him by the hand all the time. He falls down sometimes and cries. She allows this to happen because she wants him to learn how to walk.
