Prayer warriors wanted
Years ago, I went to a women's meeting with my sister-n-law and we heard a wonderful spirit-filled woman of God share with us how to create a prayer journal. We made a small three ring binder that had the following sections:
1. Meditation on the Scriptures (what has God shown you through your meditation of the scripture)
2. Praise and Thanksgiving
3. Intercession (Divided into the following subsections)
e. Our Country
4. Personal Petitions
5. Repentance and Forgiveness Prayers
I've taken it out and used it at various times throughout the years, but today I am updating it so that I can use it to keep me focused in my communication with Him. It is just a tool, and there is no magic about it, but when you journal you capture those moments, feelings or prayers. When I have looked back in my journals and read the scriptures, thoughts, lessons and prayers, that I wrote down, I have seen the progression of what the Lord was doing in my life and even sometimes in the others whom I have prayed for. It has been a great reminder of the Lord's faithfulness!
All of this will prepare me for the new challenge that I am embarking on this week. I have committed to join with Brooke McGlothlin of Warrior Prayers and many other Mothers around the globe as we pray for our sons in specific ways over the next 21 days beginning on June 8th. I will be leading my readers over the next 21 days in this challenge and I will be adding a special focus for our "special" boys who struggle with various disabilities and learning challenges.
I want to encourage you to join in this prayer challenge no matter what the age of your son is. Even adult sons need the fervent prayers of their mothers. Let us flood the gates of Gods Throne Room with our praises to Him and our prayers for our sons and then wait for His response! To God be all the Glory!
