Struggling with Prayer

Once again, it’s been a while since I’ve blogged. Somehow I think I have to say something really important or show you some new product or inspiration. Well, I’m taking a queue from my friend, Barb, & going to keep it simple. 🙂

I’ve been struggling with prayer lately. I get up in the morning and try to pray, but my mind wanders all over the place. So I read my Bible & I still get distracted by things. Finally it hit me today, I need to start a prayer journal. Nothing fancy. I literally grabbed the nearest notebook I could find and started writing out my prayers… however, I didn’t know what to write. As I mentioned, I’ve been struggling with prayer. 😉

But, I’ve been reading another book entitled, “Made to Crave” by Lysa TerKeurst. In the chapter I just read, she mentioned Psalm 86. Perfect! Opened up my Bible to Psalm 86 & started writing it out in my journal, only making it more personal. I was on verse 7… no, in the middle of verse 7 & God answered my prayer. I suppose I should tell you what verse 7 is… “I will call to you whenever I’m in trouble, and you will answer me.” Actually, He answered 2 prayers!

Needless to say, I will be journaling more. 🙂
Do you journal? How to you prefer to pray?

Have a blessed day,
Antoinette
