WFW: Ring, ring....

Prayer is so precious to me. Lately, the only way for me to have truly ALONE prayer time has been to get up at 5 and trudge downstairs before anyone is up. Of course, getting up that early meant changing prayer methods....cuz just closing my eyes would have resulted in ZZZZZ. I've prayer journal-ed from time to time...and it is really a great method for me. I find that I'm more deliberate with my wording and can't rush faster then my pen. My mind doesn't wander off (as much) either. My Dad suggested this method to me...and I think he writes in cursive to slow himself down. For me that would be reversed...I print to slow myself down.

I like thinking of my morning prayer time as an appointment...for a phone conversation with God. I loved this picture....and the verse is a great reminder that my God DOES hear me...and is sooo so worthy of my praise.

To join WFW...head over where Susan is Forever His!

Bobbi! This is WONDERFUL! I love the image but I love the post even more...I do the same thing. I have to have my prayer time "early, before anyone else rises..." I journal too...it helps me put all my thoughts down and it keeps my mind focused on Him. (I tend to get distracted...lol)

LOVED this one...and loved the image as always!

peace,
lori

This vintage artwork is lovely with this verse. I appreciated your sharing with the verse. It sounds like you have a wonderful, wise dad.

Like your thoughts there......I always used to write out a prayer in response to an email from a group asking for prayer.
I was so afraid I would forget I figured that if God had it in writing I was covered......but it seemed to also bless the person being prayed for.
