People have really cute prayer journals.
People have really organized prayer journals.
I became overwhelmed and just started writing sloppy bullet points in an old notepad.
|Don't the little birds look like they're chirping songs of praise?|
It's not totally unorganized in there. On the inside cover I have some permanent prayers listed that I want to say every day. On the other pages I write the current date, and throughout the day I jot down prayers. Then, I highlight (or, I'm going to- I only have one so far) answered prayers. At the end of the day, I pray! It's nothing fancy, but I'm excited about it. Already, it's made me much more aware of how I communicate with God. For instance, it serves as a reminder to offer up more praise, and ask for mercy when I screw up. I also find myself shooting up more mini-prayers throughout the day.
Do you have a prayer journal? How do you organize it? I'm not even a week into this yet, so I still need tips! Unless you're going to tell me to find a notebook without scribbles from a two year old in it. It's too late for that.
