Several months ago, David and I started a prayer journal. Each week we start a new page in our journal. At the top of the page, we write: 'Prayer Requests for the Week of_______". On the other side, we write "Praises". Our journal has been a great tool for documenting the many ways the Lord is answering our prayers, and also growing us through our trust in Him!
Wubs frequently joins me in the morning at the kitchen table during my quiet time. She recognizes my 'Bible book' but she has been curious about our prayer journal. (*side note* Our prayer journal also comes in very handy for a forgetful woman like myself! If I tell someone "I'll be praying for you." - I want to remember to do it! wink!) I explained to Wubs that daddy and mommy like to write down our prayers, and we like to tell Jesus thank you for answering prayers. I asked Wubs if she'd like to keep a little journal of her own, and she was excited about the idea. So here we are, Week 1 for Wub's new book of praise for Jesus. She wanted me to draw a little picture for each of her 'entries', which include thanking Jesus for her Bolt dog, sunshine, and her swingset!
"Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful."- Colossians 4:2
