The final prayer journaling hurdle I hear often? What do I write?? How do I get started?? Well, my friend, there’s a book for that! 😉
Below is how I address this particular hurdle in Praying with a Pen. But keep in mind what I repeat throughout the book: There are no rules! God is just so delighted that you have slowed down enough to sit quietly and spend time with him that the words you write are of secondary importance.
Hurdle #6: I have no idea what to write. Lucky you! You are holding in your pretty hands a book that will give you plenty of easy writing ideas, prompts and formats to try. You won’t be interested in all of them, and some of them will not fit your style. But there will be a few ideas that will speak to you and you will say to yourself, “Hey, maybe I can try that.” God doesn’t care what you write. He already knows what’s on your mind anyway! Just pick something and run with it. If you don’t like the way you are writing today, you get to try something else tomorrow. And just to show you how easy this process is, I’ve included Prayer Journaling Practice questions at the end of each chapter, so you can ease into it without any hitches.
