Good morning, DearOne,
I have prayed some pretty bizarre prayers in my lifetime … for a life to be spared, radical healing, holds, the right size, wins, gains, talks, stops, whatever-I’ve prayed for it. Looking back, I realize that every single time I have received an answer. I didn’t always recognize it at the time, and almost always the answer comes from a least expected direction. Sometimes, the answer is “wait”, and whatever the answer, it always requires active participation. We are called to be in prayer because of things, pray over things, in the midst of things, but always pray in expectation. When all is said and done, how you pray is between you and God Most High. It is an active demonstration of your belief in His presence, and the most highly effective spiritual behavior in which you, as a child of the living God can engage.
