What specific things are you praying for these days?
Last minute cries for help, a meticulous list of needs, or an unexplainable groaning from within—God hears the prayers of His people. Add specificity, and we’re given an opportunity to witness our God’s awe-inspiring attention to detail in action.
One of those moments came for me this week while peering out our window, curled up in my prayer chair. I was sharing with the Lord how I’d not sensed His presence as much in recent weeks, even though I was confident He was there—whether I felt it or not. Nevertheless, like any daughter desiring to feel closer to her Father, I made a simple but heartfelt request: “Pappa, I just want to know You’re near.”
Before catching my next breath, a brief but blustery gust of wind swept through the trees just outside my window pane—without disturbing another tree in my yard.
To many, a ten-second gust of wind would simply appear as our season’s signature. To me, however, it was a specific answer to prayer—a Father reminding His daughter that through His Holy Spirit He is always but a breath away.
What specific answers will you be watching for this week?
Pray specifically. Trust fully. Watch expectantly. Praise quickly.

Amen! I loved the last line of this post. I'm going to post it on my bathroom mirror as a reminder.
My specific prayer is a praise for an opportunity to renew a relationship.
I praise Him for the victory He will create because distant cousins are coming together because they are united in Christ that is stronger than any kin relationship.
Tamara, thanks for the idea — I think I will do the same.
Carolyn, thank you for sharing. I love that you're already thanking Him for the victory that is yet to come.
