Messy Prayer Journal?

I have tried countless times to try to organize my prayer journal to better keep track of requests. I have tried organizing it by: topics, days of the week, importance, and immediacy of event. Yet, no matter what I try, I get disorganized and end up starting over with a blank journal.

I have found a new and foolproof way to organize my journal. I never lose any requests and it is very simple to set up… What is this system I use?

I don’t organize it at all. Read more »

John. 15:14 “Ye are my friends if ye do whatsoever I command you”  — Jesus

I think we all know someone who thinks that they are big stuff because they have “friends in high places.” Realistically those earthly “friends in high places” are nothing when you realize that you can call the Creator and Director of this universe your friend.

Pray With Expectations

Image

We don’t pray enough.

This is a common issue among Christians, but why?


I submit that it is a lack of faith. Sure we think that God will work in all the normal ways (traveling safety, providing food, healing broken bones ect.) but do we trust God with everything? Our lack of faith is clearly shown when we are repeatedly shocked when God answers our payers.
