Scott, that is a beautiful way to approach God. However, I see nothing wrong with asking God for specifics. How many scriptures are you aware of that say, "ask and you will receive"? I agree with you, when you say it can be done with feelings and impressions, but it can also be done with words and actions. We most often get what we step toward. There is no way that all people can get what they ask for, because of so many conflicting causes, so there must be some other kind of qualifier. I beleive the correct way to ask is explained in some of these verses:

It is a faith growing experience to meditate until one discovers what it is God would like us to pray for. I have had many experiences where these specific prayers were answered beautifully. It can be a daily occurance.
