"Awaken anything that has died an unnecessary death in her.. If she is in a desert, bloom something stunning and obvious there."(from Beth Moore's prayer for the listeners at her live simulcast, September 15, 2012)
(See the whole prayer here at Beth Moore's blog)
That moment when... you've earnestly prayed this prayer for yourself, claiming what was prayed for you as your own... then a few days later, it happens. An old longing you had tried to put to death is reawakened. Something wonderful appears in the midst of the discouraging days.
And yet, still you question whether this thing is from God.
Until a few weeks later, you pull out your crumpled print-out of that prayer, read it again, and realize, in a wow moment, that maybe....possibly....this thing that has bloomed in your life again is God's answer to these words you prayed. Can it be?
