I firmly believe that prayer is a mother’s best friend. As a first time mom, it’s been neat to feel how much God is a part of my child’s life. There is a certain peace that I feel that tells me that as long as I am doing my best and asking for God’s help, he will make up for the areas that I lack. I love having him as a partner in parenting. A prayer journal can help with this.
When I was in college I started something called a “prayer journal” for a summer. I wanted to make my prayers more sincere and focused, so I set up a prayer journal format/template and started journaling before I would pray every night to kind of bring my mind to the right place. Something incredible happened from this experience: I noticed my prayers were being answered far more than I realized. Too often I think we pray for little things, God answers them, but we forget that we prayed for it in the first place and as a result we withhold our thanks.
