Have you tried writing or typing your prayers? Not sure where to start? My prayer journal originally started as a diary not long after my husband passed away. I wanted to write about what I was going through, and it eventually turned into my prayers as well. I typed my prayers and found it easier to focus on praying than just thinking my prayer. As the months went on I found that I spent more time in prayer than in a diary. There are days when I’m not sure how to start, so to break my block I begin with praise and thanks to my Father. I thank Him for a good night’s rest, for watching over me through the night, for the beautiful morning. You get the idea. I share my thoughts with Him and ask Him for His advice. It’s a beautiful time for me to spend with a Father who loves me unconditionally. There are 121 references to unfailing love in the Bible with approximately 72 of those appearing in Psalms.
A dear friend of mine shared with me that she’s tried typing her prayers and found that it helped her to focus more on her prayer when she typed it. However you choose to keep a prayer journal, give it a try and see how the Lord uses the time that you spend in His presence.
Blessings to you in your Journaling for Your Soul Journey.
