Prayer Journal

Dear Fellow Journalers,

One of my favorite books is “The Bridge” by Karen Kingsbury. It is a story about the relationship of people with a bookstore. Metaphorically speaking, it’s also about the connection (bridge) we cross toward the acceptance of ourselves and our creative and spiritual life. “The Bridge gives people a path to worlds they wouldn’t otherwise experience.” (Chapter 3)

A Prayer Journal’s purpose, like many other journals, is to express what is bothering you, what your gripes are, the big issues in your life, your fears. The journal gives you the opportunity to reveal your true self – not the one that hides behind the proverbial “I’m fine” saying you tell others. As you write, you delve into the deepest part of yourself. Some days you must stop and evaluate. Some days you feel yourself so overwhelmed with really strong emotions. On those days, stop, breathe, evaluate and then continue writing.

Prayer journaling is an ongoing conversation with God. Be sure to listen for that still, small voice.”

‘Til next time,

~Sallie
