Prayer Journal

Weeks if not months ago, I “started” a prayer journal in a notebook. I had high hopes for it, but looking back I think I wrote down two entries. I’m not embarrassed about that, probably more like frustrated. So, while I was raised in the era of pen/paper journaling…maybe it’s time I take my prayer journal electronic?

In talking with a friend by phone yesterday, I mentioned how I thought the Lord had suggested I put (at least some) of my prayer’s on this blog. I don’t like to hesitate when the Lord leads me; and with her affirmation that this might help others – I decided to give it a whirl.

We all need God, but we need prayers more because they are the vehicle He uses to help us as we navigate this “life.” Prayers are our way to communicate our needs with Him and they serve as a form of reverent worship.  I’ll start now by including what my morning prayers usually “look” like.

Dear Lord,  Thank you for this new day. Thank you for the blessing of a new start, with no mistakes. I ask for your forgiveness and that you will show your mercy to this “sinner.” I need your SPIRIT to fill me. Walk with me. Help me see what you see, say what you would say and follow you…allow me to walk and share your light. Allow me to be a light to others.

Thank you for loving me and please, never let me go. I am yours…

In Jesus name, Amen
