Power in Prayer

I believe there is tremendous power in prayer. In fact, I believe it is one the most under-utilized tools of believers today, myself included! We see in 1 Thessalonians 5:17 to "pray without ceasing". And in Colossians 4:2 we are told to "devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart."

Sometimes, though, I can feel stuck and/or overwhelmed by all I can and need to pray for. Am I alone here? Or, I'll set some time aside to pray as I'm going to bed and fall asleep while praying. I can't be alone on that one, right?! So, tools to help me grow in my prayer life are something I very much need and enjoy and I have found a couple great tools I wanted to share with you!

ValMariePaper has an awesome prayer journal that I'm excited to get it (I just ordered it) and start using.  It's a 6 month prayer journal with topics to help jog your mind of specific requests to pray for. There are also sections to record answered prayers and specific Scriptures the Lord uses to speak to you. Love it!!

Another great tool I recently found thanks to Natasha @ Hello Happiness is focused on what to pray for my kids. I really love this!!
I'm excited to utilize these tools! I hope you find them useful, too!

  1. I'm definitely going to look into the prayer journal-- such a good, but basic idea! Love how pretty the journal is as well!

  2. Very neat! I love journals so I could totally see myself using a prayer journal. I also like the prayer for your kids. Because if time allowed it I am sure we could want to pray all day every day about something for them! This is a great way that it breaks it up! Thank you for sharing!

    1. I love journals, too, so I'm really excited about it! And I love the specifics of the prayers for my kiddos. :)

  3. Oooh love the prayer journal, can't wait to see it!

  4. The prayer journal is such a good idea! My problem while praying is that I have a wandering mind.. I start praying and then I sort of branch out from there and have to remind myself to get back to where I started haha!

  5. Love that prayer journal! What a brilliant idea :) Also love the fact that He knows our hearts and He intercedes when our mind is at a loss for words!

  6. Ah! Love the prayer journals!! I 10000000% believe in the power of prayer. Love this. Xx.

  7. LOVE that prayer journal!!!
    Thanks for sharing your heart, your wisdom, and that Scripture.
    Amen, sister!!! xx

  8. I love that prayer journal! The list of things to pray for in regards to our kids is wonderful too. I'll have to copy it. I feel like I really need more prayer time, especially when it comes to my children.
    Beautiful post

  9. What an awesome prayer journal! I love the breakdown of it! My prayers are usually jumbled on the notepad on my iphone by the end of the day, I'd much rather have that!


Thank you for leaving me a little note! I love hearing from you!!
