Yesterday I shared how worry & prayer don't mix.
Here's another thing Jesus has been speaking to me...
and changing in me.
"Praying specifically" isn't about giving God several
specific ways to answer a prayer.
It's presenting specific needs to God. Period.
And letting Him do the answering.
"Don’t worry about anything;
instead, pray about everything.
Tell God what you need,
and thank him for all he has done.
If we get it into our heads that we must come up
with ways for Him to answer...
- it'll keep us from praying cuz when
we "don't know what to ask for"...
- keeps us frustrated
- keeps us from experiencing miracles
- causes worry
Don't worry... INSTEAD... pray.
Tell God what you NEED.... and thank Him.
My prayers have turned from "not knowing what to
ask for" into something like this...
"Lord Jesus, we have _____ need and only you
can help us."
"Jesus, this ____ is so difficult! Please Help!"
Does this lesson from Philippians ring a bell with you?
