What Do You Want God to Do?

DFL Prayer Cards

“In the day of my trouble I will call to you, for you will answer me” (Ps. 86:7).

A few weeks ago I served as a volunteer at the Designed for Life Women’s Conference at JQH Arena in Springfield, MO. During the three-day conference, hundreds of prayer request cards were filled out by women seeking God’s help in various situations.

When I piled all 400+ cards on the table, I was overwhelmed by the size of the stack. So much pain. So many needs.

But, in the next breath, I remembered that we serve a big God, one who is willing and able to answer! One who responds to the cries of His people!

Let me give you an example from the Bible.

One day when Jesus and his disciples were leaving Jericho, they came across a man who sat by the roadside begging. When the man heard that Jesus was near, he cried out to Him. The Bible says the beggar shouted. His voice was so loud that people told him to be quiet.

But the man didn’t zip his lips. Instead, he shouted all the more!

Then Jesus stopped and asked the beggar, “What do you want me to do for you?” The man replied, probably without hesitation, “Rabbi, I want to see.”

Do you know what happened next? The blind man wasn’t blind anymore! He received his sight. And then he followed Jesus.

God cares about what’s happening in your life. Nothing is too trivial to bring to Him. No situation is too difficult for Him to handle. The Lord wants to help you. He wasn’t too busy to answer the man’s cries. And He isn’t too busy to answer yours.

The Lord sees right where you are. He hears your cries. And He will respond. It may not be immediate as it was for the blind man, but you can be confident God is working.

Today Jesus is asking, โ€œWhat do you want me to do for you?”

Take your concerns to God in prayer. Just talk to Him about what’s on your mind and heart. Your words don’t have to be fancy or formal. Pour out your heart to the Lord in honest communication. Your heavenly Father is waiting. He loves you so much.

  8. Asking forgiveness for my rebellion against God and restoration of relationship with Him, but feeling too far gone. My faith is weak and my fears are strong.

    • Jen, good news! The Lord promises forgiveness when we confess our sins to Him. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). You’re never too far gone, my friend. Receive God’s mercy and grace. There is no condemnation and shame because Jesus paid for your sin (all of it) on the cross. You don’t have to carry around guilt. You are FREE in Christ! Rejoice in God’s goodness and praise Him!

    • “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!” (Is. 49:15). The Lord God DOES see you. He is El Roi, the God who sees. As you continue to wait upon Him and His perfect timing, may you be strengthened in your inner spirit and filled with joy. The Lord has great plans for you! He promises to fulfill those plans as you trust in Him. Keep believing in God’s Word and claiming His promises. The Lord is faithful! ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Father God, I love you and I desire the relationship that I have with you be that and more in the daughter, son-in-law, grandkids, and family. I pray for wisdom and your guidance in all things. I pray for total healing from back pain, and total deliverance from overeating. I pray to be totally fit physically, spiritually, financially, and relationally. I pray for a spiritual revival in our home, local church, the body of Christ, and our nation. I pray for violence and anger in the land to cease and desist. I pray for order to be restored, and for your peace. I pray for our government officials and all of those in authority over us. Father God, give them wisdom and spiritual insight when governing. Most of all, give those who need it a genuine relationship with you. A relationship where they will seek you prior to making any decision that will have an impact on your people. Father God, I ask you to continue to bless Kristen Feola as she carries out your purpose. Thank you Lord for what you are doing through her, and this medium to people around the world.

    • Amen! I pray the Lord will strengthen you today as you trust in Him. May He pour out His favor on your life and fill your heart with joy. Thank you, too, for praying for me. I’m so grateful! ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Heavenly Father, I love You and I thank You for all You did for me. I praise You for Who You are. I ask You to reach our sons, Lord, and touch them and bring them back to You. What a glorious celebration that would be! Thank You, for already being there and hearing my heart! I wait for the manifestation, in Jesus name, Amen, Amen.
