Journaling Prayers


bible and journal

It’s hard for me to stay focused during my Morning Prayer time. My thoughts inevitably go to the list of household chores or errands that need to be run. In an effort to stay focused on God, I started write my prayers. Journaling has helped me stay focused and keep my attention on my Heavenly Father. In return, answers to prayers are documented.

How do you stay engaged during your quiet time?

It occurred to me today, that my journal is a love story. The idea brought me joy, as I think about the love our Creator has for all of us. He cares enough to write a love story for each one of us. Are you participating in the love story He’s writing for you?

Walk in His Light,

Julie

  3. Julie, I have been journaling my prayer time for years. It is how I stay focused. It is a great way to go back and read all that God has done in my life; it strengthens my faith.

  4. I, too, write to stay focused during my quiet time. Writing is a form of meditation, slowing down the thought processes. That’s when I discover nuggets of truth that otherwise I would miss. My guess is you’ve experienced the same.

    P.S. Thank you, Julie, for stopping by my blog, http://www.nancyaruegg.com From the Inside Out! I’m so glad you liked “Simple Blessings.”
