How Do You Pray?

But as for me, my prayer is to You,O LORD, in the acceptable time; O God, in the multitude of Your mercy, Hear me in the truth of Your salvation.
Psalm 69:13

What is your prayer life like? How often do you pray? Who and when do you pray for?

My favorite Quiet Time habit, one that I consistently continued in was the following...
(I have a journal / notebook with dividers)

Praise - Praise GOD for who He is, what He has done etc... I would read a Psalm a day, and write all of God's attributes from the Psalm

Admit - Acknowledge to God my sins, my failings, etc

Requests - List your requests here - I always started with myself (get down to the nitty-gritty: attitudes, etc), then list your family and other requests you would like to pray for. I did this sheet once a month - adding new things as I went. Then I would do a new sheet every month - to make it look neat....

Thanksgiving - Be specific - give thanks for things God has done for you!!! This is another Praise type section - but it is acknowledging how God has been working in your life!!!

Don't forget to read the Bible every day!!!

But his delight is
in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.

Psalm 1:2


Will you join me in this special prayer time with God???

Tomorrow, May 1, 2007 - I am hoping to share at least my Praise time - with you on my blog!!!

In Christ,
Lori

Glad to see you blogging again! Hey, that's the same way I pray! I think I learned that about 10 years ago and it works wonderfully...not sure who originated it, but it is widespread.
