Be Specific

December 19, 2012

On the day before a major surgery, I shared with my friend that I was really scared about the procedure. “What part scares you?” she inquired. “I’m just so afraid that I won’t wake up from the anesthesia,” I replied. Immediately, Anne prayed: “Father, you know all about Cindy’s fear. Please calm her heart and fill her with Your peace. And, Lord, please wake her up after surgery.”

I think God likes that kind of specificity when we talk to Him. When Bartimaeus, the blind beggar, called out to Jesus for help, Jesus said, “What do you want Me to do for you?” And the blind man said, “Rabboni, that I may receive my sight!” Jesus said, “Go your way; your faith has made you well” (Mark 10:51-52).

We don’t need to beat around the bush with God. While there may be a time to pray poetically as David did, there are also times to say bluntly, “God, I’m so sorry for what I just said,” or to say simply, “Jesus, I love You because . . . .” Being specific with God can even be a sign of faith because we are acknowledging that we know we’re not talking to a far-off Being but to a real Person who loves us intimately.

God is not impressed by a flurry of fanciful words. He is listening for what our heart is saying.

Poetic prose in prayer to God
Is not what He requires;
Instead, specific heartfelt pleas
Are what the Lord desires. —Sper
The heart of prayer is prayer from the heart.

Read: Mark 10:46-52

What do you want Me to do for you? —Mark 10:51
Bible in a Year:
James 3-5

Hi - just jumped in real quick. Lots of things going on with family and friends. So, I'm a partridge in a pear tree.

For you, the holidays are a time of quiet reflection. You like to get some moments to yourself. You like to think about the meaning of the holidays. You tap into the spiritual side of things, even if you aren't religious.

Your holiday wish is peace on earth. You wish the world was a happier place. You may not be able to change the world through your small actions, but you're going to try!

A Blessed Christmas To All My Freeper Friends!!!!

Christmas shopping needs some fine adjustments before it's done.....but that's usually the case.

Feeling a bit better but I haven't had a cold in years. Always heard they last a week to ten days no matter what one does.

And a Happy Winter Holiday to you too, M-L.

I opened up my collection of politically correct Winter Holiday songs, among them, "Still in the Night", "O Come All Ye Ambivalent", and my personal favorite, "Random Chance Rest Ye Merry Gentlepersons".

Hope you're well.

No, thank goodness, the mall closes at 6pm...and I work the early shift and get off at 1:30pm. My MIL is supposed to be here, so at least I’ll be home most of the day to visit with her.

For you, the holidays are a time to take care of those you're close to. You love that it's the season of giving.
You are generous all times of the year, but you definitely step it up during the holidays.

Your holiday wish is for everyone to have a safe and happy holiday. It breaks your heart to think of anyone in pain during this time.
You wish that you could take care of everyone in the world, but at least you're able to look after everyone you love!

In the song, Christ is symbolically presented as a mother partridge which feigns injury to decoy predators from her helpless nestlings, much in memory of the expression of Christ's sadness over the fate of Jerusalem: "Jerusalem! Jerusalem! How often would I have sheltered thee under my wings, as a hen does her chicks, but thou wouldst not have it so..."

The other symbols mean the following:

2 Turtle Doves = The Old and New Testaments
3 French Hens = Faith, Hope and Charity, the Theological Virtues
4 Calling Birds = the Four Gospels and/or the Four Evangelists
5 Golden Rings = The first Five Books of the Old Testament, the "Pentateuch", which gives the history of man's fall from grace.
6 Geese A-laying = the six days of creation
7 Swans A-swimming = the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, the seven sacraments
8 Maids A-milking = the eight beatitudes
9 Ladies Dancing = the nine Fruits of the Holy Spirit
10 Lords A-leaping = the ten commandments
11 Pipers Piping = the eleven faithful apostles
12 Drummers Drumming = the twelve points of doctrine in the Apostle's Creed
