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.
