Writing Your Prayers

The Holy Spirit teaches us that we are to be devoted when it comes to prayer, Colossians 4:2-3. We are to be like our Savior Jesus who would often slip away for prayer, Luke 5:16.

We are to pray without ceasing, 1 Thessalonians 5:17.

Hopefully we are prayer on a regular basis. At times it can certainly be a challenge. There are a lot of things that can easily distract us. We can become so busy with STUFF…

S…Social Media


U…Useless time fillers stealers like playing on the internet or watching television.

F…Football (which almost back in season. How much time does that take from our weekend?)

F…Fantasy…More and more people would rather live in fantasy worlds (through movies,books, shows, games, etc.) than actually enjoying the REAL WORLD.

We need TIME to pray. I need to do it often. I need to do it more. Maybe you do too.

One of the things that has helped me with my prayers is writing them. I began doing this in 2013. Writing your prayers has a lot of advantages than maybe saying them in your head. There’s nothing wrong saying your prayers like that, or saying them out loud. But I have come to enjoy writing out my prayers when I can.

1. It helps me to stay focused more with my thoughts.

2. It forces me to slow down as I talk to God.

3. It allows me to see where my mindset is with respect to my walk.

4. I can go back and see how God has answered so many of my prayers.

Again, this isn’t something that you have to do, but maybe it will be something that could benefit you. I go to Barnes and Nobles and will buy a nice journal. Eventually, when that is filled up, I go and buy another one.

You may want to give it a shot. Whatever you do, continue to pray. And pray for ME!

I CAN DO and SO CAN YOU. Life is all about having the right kind of attitude. We will face challenges. We have to decide how we will respond. Getting an ICD (Internal Cardio-Verter Defibrillator) in 2010 forced me to make a decision about my mindset. I decided that I CAN DO. What about you? Let's go.
