Must our prayers be particular?
Yes. I would order my cause before him, Job 23:4.
Yes. I will not let thee go except thou bless me, Genesis 32:26
Yes. Not as I will but as thou wilt, Matthew 26:39.
And joined with suitable endeavors?
Yes. Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they may go forward, Exodus 14:15.
Yes. Pray without ceasing, 1 Thessalonians 5:17.
And are such prayers likely to be effectual?
Yes. For God will fulfill the desire of them that fear him, Psalm 145:19.
Amen. That’s what I was arguing for in this post.
