God answers our specific prayers.

What an accurate and personal God we serve!  How else would He be otherwise?  For example, when I pray I do so in specifics.  His love for us is such that He cares about the details of our requests.  Yes, He will give us the desires of our heart when we pray according to His will for our life.  But when we ask specifically it is amazing when He answers specifically as well.  Here's a testimony to this:  The renewal fee on my key card was due in April.  Being a single mom funds in this business especially have to be allocated wisely and always after consulting with the Lord.  In prayer last week I asked God for the provision of a quick closing.  Specifically I prayed to represent the buyer then petitioned the Lord by asking, "... And Father could You please have the listing using a combo lock instead of an electronic one?"  Within 2 days, a friend called me to purchase a condo in Lancaster, PA.  I found just one on the market in the community she requested.  The blessing was this -- the lockbox was a combination lock.  Within three days we had a ratified contract and are closing June 16.  So when we pray know that God will answer our specific prayers when we ask according to His will for our life. 

GBY!  Barbara :)

Barbara,  so right you are.  All we have to do is ask according to the will of God and He will do what He said.  In fact if we "seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, all things will be added unto us." Matthew 6:33

Stay blessed,

Ced

Hi Barbara, wonderful post!  God is so good to us, and prayer helps in all aspects of our life including business.  Right now, I am asking him what I am to learn from some hardships and it is comforting to know that He has the answers.  Take care.

Hi Denise and thank you for the post.  I understand hardships and trials and tribulations well myself.  The good news is that God is ever so loving to carry us during these times and always faithful to send others to pray us through them.  Know that I am just a click away!  Barbara :)
