" Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it."
Clearly God wants us to pray specifically. I have been thinking lately that it might be showing a lack of faith when I pray "whatever your will is, Lord" or when I say "bless us today." It's so general - of course God is going to do those things. But Christ himself, knowing that He had to die to save the world, still prayed that God would remove that cup from him.
So here's my very specific prayer request. :) We need to move soon, and would like to rent a three-bedroom house with a fenced-in yard in Oregon City for $1000 a month or less. We want to be much closer to our church, especially as the Drama Queen will be starting school next year. The Drama Queen also needs her own bedroom - sharing with her two brothers really isn't an option any more. The yard is needed for sanity purposes.
God has already answered our prayer in getting someone to rent our condo in which we currently reside. Now we ask Him in faith to provide this next step for us. Please pray with us that the right opportunity will come quickly.
And, I have to admit, I am very excited to get out of this "crackerbox" we call home...
