I found this article by Leslie Ludy, author of Set-Apart Motherhood, encouraging, practical and challenging. It’s safer, sometimes, to pray general prayers. But we can see the answers if we pray specifically, persistently. True, “no” is sometimes an answer, but are we ready to take that answer from our Lord and know He is loving? Have we cleared our own relationship with the Lord while we ask Him for our children? I would encourage you to take just a few minutes to read this article. I think you will be glad you did! And so will your children!
