Praying with a Pen

Good Morning, God!

Do you ever find yourself staring at a blank page when you try to prayer journal? Don’t worry. It happens all the time, even to people who have been prayer journaling for years (um, yeah, me.). Here’s one little secret to jump-start your writing when you’re stuck: Start with a greeting! You can use a simple salutation like, “Good morning, God!” or “Dear Jesus,” or even, “Hello Holy Spirit…”.  One of these tricks is sure to break open the logjam in your brain and unleash a flow of thoughts.
