A friend of mine is a great proponent of being specific in prayer. When encouraging people to pray, he often says, "Remember to be specific."
Think about it. Can we really pour out our hearts to God in prayer without being specific? Can we really draw near to the throne of Grace without being specific? Can we really intercede for those in need without being specific? Can we truly ascribe unto God beauty and holiness with being specific? Can we humble ourselves before our Majestic King without being specific?
We do need to be specific in prayer. We also need to be transparent with one another about our praise and prayer requests, so they can be specific in praying for us. Hopefully, some who read these lines will share some specific praise items and prayer requests in the comments that follow so we can be specific in our prayers for one another today. I'll kick things off with the first comment. Please remember to be specific.
May you be richly blessed with a wonderful week in service to God and others!
