Jesus will tailor a response to your precise need. He’s not a fast-food cook. He is an accomplished chef who prepares unique blessings for unique situations. When crowds of people came to Christ for healing, “One by one he placed his hands on them and healed them” (Luke 4:40 The Message). Jesus could have proclaimed a cloud of healing blessings to fall upon the crowd. But our Lord is not a one-size-fits-all Savior. He placed his hands on each one, individually, personally.

A precise prayer gives Christ the opportunity to remove all doubt about his love and interest. The challenge you face becomes a canvas upon which Christ can demonstrate his finest work. So offer a simple prayer and entrust your problem to Christ. Remember, friend, you are never alone.
