Building Your Prayer Journal: Part Four
This will be my final post in my prayer journal series! This will a short and simple post, but it involves praying for something that we, as wives and moms and daughters and sisters and friends, often overlook - praying for ourselves. It's easy to get so wrapped up in everything we are to others and everything we do, that we forget to take care of ourselves.
Take time to pray for yourself. Pray over your priorities. Pray over your schedule. Pray for your ministry. Pray for the strength and wisdom to do all that God has called you do.
Stormie Omartian's book, The Power of a Praying Woman, is an amazing resource for this portion of your prayer journal. She brings out 30 areas that we need prayer in, such as being drawn into a closer walk with God, asking God to bless the work that we do, and seeking guidance in all our relationships.
If you're signed up for the Hello Mornings challenge that begins next week, this is the perfect time to put together a prayer journal. Having a plan ahead of time is an important part of having daily time with God. The payout will be worth the effort!
Thanks so much for reading and taking this journey with me. I hope this series has helped you.
