Job 33:3 (Pt. 5)  Thought/Prayer:  Greatly Specific Prayer.  Topics: 2 at end.

“My words shall utter the uprightness of my heart: and that which my lips know they shall speak sincerely.”  ERV (Read these scriptures and more at http://prayerpivot.com.) 
I Samuel l:9-13 “Hannah Prays for a Son
So Hannah rose after they had eaten in Shiloh, and after they had drank. Now Eli the priest sat upon a seat by a post of the temple of the LORD.  And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed to the LORD, and wept bitterly.  And she vowed a vow, and said, O LORD of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thy handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thy handmaid, but wilt give to thy handmaid a male child, then I will give him to the LORD all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head.
And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the LORD, that Eli observed her mouth. Now Hannah spoke in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken.” 

We should perhaps be thankful that this prayer of Hannah’s is recorded for us.  The thought is this:  If situations in life make us turn to the Lord in grievous prayer with anguish of heart and longing for an answer, then maybe that is when we pray our most sincere and God-honoring prayers.  We should pray every day, and mostly as Christians, we probably attempt to do this.  But this type of deepest soul-prayer?  Maybe it doesn’t just come along every day.

Not that it shouldn’t.  No, if our need of God is greatly seen every day, then these type of prayers will come forth from our hearts and perhaps our lips (even if the words formed are silent, even if unheard by others).  It would be difficult to prove, but perhaps some of the greatest people of prayer efficiency are those who do . . . daily . . . lift up petitions such as Hannah’s.

Most of us, though, do not.  But most of us may have had such a “Hannah” experience in prayer that we remember it as standing out among other petitions.  We may remember when we were prostrate on the floor in intense prayer.  We may remember when we could not wait to get to prayer because of the intensity of our desire for answers.

These times of prayer can be exhausting; so much of us is poured out of our hearts and into them.  And they may be so specific that the intensity makes them even more narrowed and honed in focus.

But thank you, Lord, for giving this recorded example of such a lady who prayed with great effort and submission to You and Your will.  Help us to care about others as she did for a very wanted baby.  These specific prayers may be just what is needed for a wonderful answer, perhaps even saving the LIFE of a preborn person.

Topics:  Pray for willingness to allow God to convict us to pray with heart and intensity for His gifts He wants to give us.
