Prayer is a weapon that we wage in the spiritual realm. It isn't just a weapon though it is to be used in our relationship to our Creator, our heavenly Father. Here lately, I have been discovering more about how I like to journal my prayers.
The reason I started journaling prayers was for me to see how God has moved in the things that I have been praying about. I don't always write my prayers out but it has helped me recognize how God has moved. Sometimes we forget how God has moved in certain areas. I tend to forget a lot until I re-read some of the older prayers that I have written.
Prayer is such a powerful thing. It is a step in humbling ourselves and it builds our relationship with God. The Bible speaks of our relationship to God as a marriage. What would a marriage or any relationship be like if we didn't talk to the other person? Well, it wouldn't be a relationship, would it?
My opinion is that without a prayer life there is really no relationship. This cuts me as I am writing it because I could be on my phone less and spend more time with the Lord.
Lord help me to spend more time with you. Help me to build that relationship with you.
I hope my rambling has helped someone out there.
