What do you want?-2
Mark 10:51 “And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight”
Many people want something but are praying for a totally different thing. You cannot be desiring a “white duplex house” and be praying for “shelter”! The word shelter is vague and ambiguous in the place of prayer; what do you really want?
One other reason why Jesus asked this question and wanted Bartimaeus to say out what he wanted is so as to obey the Law of Agreement. Hear this:
Matthew 18:19 “Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.”
Two must agree together as touching the same thing before they can have a divine approval. Friend, before you come to the place of prayer, settle the issue of what you want.
The starting point to a prayer that will command result is a specific burning desire:
Mark 11:24 “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire when ye pray believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”
The word desire here is talking about the specifics of what you want. Once that is settled you then open your mouth to pray and you can be sure of the approval of heaven and answers.
Hear the prayer of a woman:
1Samuel 1:11 “And she vowed a vow, and said O LORD of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the LORD all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head.”
Hannah has been praying for a child but on this occasion she believed and prayed to God for a “man child”. She didn’t stop there, she also ask for a child whose hair will not be barbed.
