“The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” James 5:16
Our Texas Annual Conference offers a “Wellness Program” with a structured exercise program through our health insurance. Each week or so we are offered a motivational “challenge” that expands “Wellness” beyond exercise and weight loss. The current challenge is “to journal a prayer daily”. How wonderful to remember that our spiritual side is a crucial part of being healthy people.
So here is your challenge. Write at least one brief prayer each week and post it in a comment at the bottom of this post. Post as many as you wish!
Check in often and pray through the prayers of others who post. This could be a part of your personal well and a jump-start to a richer prayer life.
Below is a worksheet that I use in classes and for writing group prayers in strategic planning. If you are not sure how to form your written prayer, this provides a starting place.
As for me….. I am going to write 100 brief prayers of this style in August! Each time the Spirit moves, I am carrying a blank notebook to write them down. Please join me and share how Jesus is touching your heart in prayer.
