WFW: Light Prayer Hook

I few years ago my Loverbrains and I heard about prayer hooks. You know, something to hang your prayers on...a reminder. We use on ramps and off ramps to hang our prayers for travelling mercies and blessed visits. We use the street where our church is located to hang our prayers for that day's services, our pastor, the teachers. I use my husband's socks (the thing I dread most to fold) as a hook to stick up my prayers for him and his day. I love this idea...and it really really helps me.

So, I also have scripture hooks. I'll bet you can guess what they are...yup, places or things that help me remember scriptures. When I replace light bulbs...I think of John 8:12 (or 9:5 or 1:9). I'm a bit of nerd about this too. I wear Sweet Honesty perfume...cuz it reminds me of...
"Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ." Eph. 4:15 I find I do it with names too...like Joy...I think of Nehemiah 8..."the joy of the Lord is my strength." Yes, I think of it to the tune of children's song. Songs can be great scripture hooks!

I could go on and on...but if you've never tried out prayer or scripture hooks...I'd encourage you to give it a go...We've been so blessed...

If you'd like to join WFW...go to Lori's where it's about all you have to give.

Very cool, Bobbi! I first heard of your idea from a Russian missionary. He loves American cheesecake, so we took him took him to the Cheesecake Factory for dessert. He asked us to pray for him whenever we eat or think about cheesecake! (Praying for Andre right now.)

((Hugs))
