I am convicted on how to improve my prayer life. I have a great time with the Lord daily. I love it!!
One of my convictions is that I don't know how to pray for the long lists of people that I know need prayer. For example, at our church they put together a prayer list. Even with a church of 150 members the prayer list is so long it would take hours upon hours to pray for everyone specifically. Then there's all the missionaries we know. We are blessed to know a lot but I still feel inadequate in how I pray for them. It has come to the point where I almost don't want to get the list on Wednesday nights because it makes me feel guilty that I haven't prayed for every single person on it.
Another issue is that I have been journaling my prayers in the morning. I know I repeat some of the same specific requests for my husband and children and add new and different thoughts as God brings them to mind. How can I continually pray for the same things yet add to it? I love writing out sentences but feel like I may not be using my time in the wisest manner when I do that...it's very time consuming.
Any thoughts or ideas would be great! As an fyi - I just got the Garden Tryst but haven't read through all of it yet.
