Prayer request

I need some very specific help from God. I’ll soon be facing a situation about which I have absolutely no idea what to do. That’s why I’m praying for God’s clear, specific and particular guidance.

Does God guide in specific ways? I believe He does. I’m thinking along the lines of 1 Corinthians 16:9; 2 Corinthians 2:12; Colossians 4:3; and Acts 16:7:

“…a wide door for effective work has opened to me…” (1 Corinthians 16:9)

“…a door was opened for me in the Lord…” (2 Corinthians 2:12)

“At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word…” (Colossians 4:3)

“…they attempted to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them.” (Acts 16:7)

Clearly, God can guide in specific ways. That’s why I pray that He will guide me in a specific way. I need to know exactly what I should do.

If the Lord lays it on your mind, will you pray with me? Thanks.

Just this morning, as I was mowing the lawn, I was wondering about you. Yes, it is my privilege to pray for you.

Our weakness, God's strength.

Thank you so much, my brother, for thinking about us--my family and me. We appreciate your intercession on our behalf.

God's grace is sufficient.
