“A Leader’s Prayer Life” Part IV “Be Specific” – Rick Warren

I came across this article on pastors.com all about a leader’s prayer life. This article is not just for ministry leaders. It’s for anyone who prays! He takes a look at how Nehemiah prayed throughout his trials, and it’s very enlightening. I feel that this article could completely transform your prayer life! It’s a pretty long article, so I will break it down into four parts. The fourth and final part talks about being specific in your prayer.

“4. Be very specific in what I ask for.
If you want specific answers to prayer you need to make specific requests. If you make general prayers, how will you know if they are answered?

Nehemiah is not hesitant to pray for success. He’s very bold in his praying. Have you ever prayed, “Lord, make me successful!” If you haven’t, why haven’t you? What is the alternative? A failure? There is nothing wrong with praying for success if what you’re doing is ultimately for the glory of God. Pray boldly. Pray that God will make you successful in life for the glory of God. That’s what Nehemiah did. This is a valid prayer. Give me success!

If you can’t ask God to make you a success at what you’re doing, you should be doing something else. God doesn’t want you to waste your life.”
