Yesterday at church we talked about praying more.
I started something a couple months ago that has been working so well I thought I'd share.
Prayer Journals have not worked for me because I forget to write in them, and/or forget to actually open them up.
I took 4 index cards. I labeled them Myself, Shane, The Boys & Our Home.
Each card has specific requests that are one word or so. It has been so simple and I just keep them in my Bible.
For Example, on Our Home here are some of the things I'm praying for:
- a safe place
- peaceful, sanctuary, refuge
- the Word of God spoken here
- gentle tone
As I'm reading Scripture, if I see something else to pray over my family I add the one or two words to the appropriate card.
It is a very simple thing, but I have seen results from it which is so much fun. You can make a card for any person or situation you'd like to remember in prayer. Have fun!
