At the forementioned leadership retreat, we were challenged to make a prayer journal. Our leader not only supplied us with the idea but also the notebooks and scrap stuff to make one! We had so much fun putting them together but more importantly it has given me a way to keep track of answered prayer and God's faithfulness even when we may not get the answer we want. I thought it was such a great idea I would share it with you and maybe you can start your own!
Here are the tabs I have made: Chris (husband), Sydni and Colby (kids), family (mom, dad, sister, brother, etc) and friends. Then I put an 'immediate' tab for things like the earthquake in Haiti yesterday. And a 'thanks' tab so I don't forget to thank God for all his blessings. And finally a 'notes' tab to write down insights he gives me while I'm reading scripture and praying. Eventually I'm sure I will add more tabs but for now I'm excited about using this small tool to become a prayer warrior (princess ;) )!
