Wait a minute! Let me explain before you get upset with me!
Now that I've got your attention...what I'm trying to say with the title to this post is this...we can't "bother" God with our prayer requests...just because they're "small".
Here's an entry I wrote back in November 2004 and posted it on Pilgrim Scribblings:
"In recent weeks we've been asked to pray for many people in a variety of situations. Through the incredible vehicle of e-mail we've been able to mobilize hundreds of friends to lift these needs before our Almighty God.
God has answered prayer . . . sometimes in big ways, more often in, what seems to us, smaller ways. People are asking us, more and more, to send out prayer requests for a variety of needs.
The temptation is always there to mention only the "urgent", the "pressing" needs. I'm learning that in God's economy, there aren't big and small, possible and impossible, urgent and not-so-urgent requests. Nothing is too difficult for God. Nothing too big for Him, nothing too insignificant.
Have you misplaced something? Pray about it! If it concerns you, it concerns Him. "He will perfect that which concerns you". Let's become praying Christians, committing each concern to a faithful God who hears and answers prayer. You won't be "bothering" Him, He's already invited us to come "boldly" and "with confidence" (Hebrews 4:16)."
So, in July of 2007...keep those prayer requests coming!
And, in case you forgot, here's mine:
Please pray that the windows of heaven will open and our needs (mortgage money) will be met in a supernatural way. THANKS!
Now go and bother God with your praises and prayer requests. He's anxiously waiting!
