This morning, I woke up praying for Brian. I prayed that Brian would wait on the Lord, that his strength would be renewed, and that he would soar like the eagle. I prayed that God would encourage him and refresh him. Brian was heading to Dallas for a meeting he had specifically prayed for and God had worked out in an amazing way. Before he left, he asked me to pray for him. I wrapped my arms around him and prayed this verse over him. Isa 40: 31, “They who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” I prayed that Brian would see the Lord’s presence, that angels would protect him as he drove, and that God would be honored today.
Life lesson: God answers prayer SPECIFICALLY
During my conference period, I called Brian. He was so excited to tell me that as he drove he saw a large bird in a tree as he approached Huntsville. As he drove nearer, the bird soared right over his car. It was an eagle! I checked several websites and eagles have been sighted in the Huntsville area. Who knew? I am amazed by the strength and rarity of the eagle. I am more amazed at the love God continues to rain down over Brian and I.
I praise God for the faithfullness to hear and answered my prayers so specifically. I praise God for giving me such strength in my spirit. I know this eagle siting was an answer to my prayers. God's goodness is so evident and His presence is so strong. God heard and answered my prayer, specifically by encouraging my husband with the presence of an eagle. His strength was renewed and so was mine! What a great God we serve! What do you need today? Pray for it, specifically. Message me your requests, I will pray with you. Know He cares so deeply for you. He will answer your prayers, specifically!
