"In Jesus Name" - Day 17
Prayer is not eloquence, but earnestness; not the definition of helplessness, but the feeling of it; not figures of speech, but earnestness of soul.
~ Hannah More
- Start a declaration journal by writing the Psalms and inserting your name, or the names of those you are praying for, into each verse. On one page, write what you are praying. On the other, write what God is saying in response. Move your journaling from desperation to declaration!
- Write down your heartfelt cries, your deepest moments of worship, your times of repentance and your times of joy. And like the Psalms are for us, let them be something that you and future generations can go back through and see how the hand of God worked in your life.
- Search out a psalm that reflects what you’re praying about. Are you fearful? Hopeful? Regretful? Shameful? Worshipful? Joyful? The possibilities are endless. Once you have found a psalm, begin praying it out loud. You will move from praying it in your mind to praying it from your heart.
