Ever noticed a little child say, “I’m hungry!” Then when you offer them a plate of veggies, it’s “I don’t want that!”
This is immediately followed by, “Well, what do you want?” And the response, in the face of veggies, becomes very specific!
This is the same when we pray. Be specific… then when the response comes, we KNOW it was God who answered!
When the blind man came near, Jesus asked him,
“What do you want me to do for you?” “Lord, I want to see,” he replied. Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has healed you.” Luke 18:40-42
I recall many, many times asking specifically for what was needed and God answered. There isn’t enough room to share it all here… but I can testify to it being true!
Hope and faith reside in our specific prayer.
