Lord, I’ve lifted up my hands, pour out Your Holy Spirit and let Your words known to me. I want to walk in the Spirit one moment at a time and deny the desires of the flesh. Help me be a faithful servant. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Lord, As I read Your Word, fill me with Your Holy Spirit so both of my heart and mind are open for wisdom and instruction. You are my Shepherd and Counselor so teach me Your precepts and provide guidance one day at a time. I want to be wise in all of my decisions today. I want to walk and apply all of your teachings in my life. I honor You and love You, Abba Father. In Jesus name, I praise. Amen.

I boldly praise and courageously pray, Your faithful and beloved servant.
“Hear, O LORD, my prayer; And listen attentively to the voice of my supplications (specific requests)! In the day of my trouble, I will call upon You, For You will answer me. But You, O Lord, are a God [who protects and is] merciful and gracious, Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness and truth.” PSALMS 86:6-7, 15 AMP

For great is Your lovingkindness and graciousness toward me; and You have rescued my life from the depths of Sheol [from death]. Psalm 86:13 AMP
Lord, I know you will hear me when I cry in distress, help me not overreact when faced with challenging circumstances and help me be slow to anger and be forgiving at all times. Help me, love, extend grace and be more like You, in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
Good morning! Hope you are having a relaxing and enjoyable weekend. I attended a women’s leadership conference this past Saturday. As I waited for a friend to sit with me at lunch break, I was sitting alone in a round table for eight when Susan Holloway walked in. It was an instant, divine connection. This unforgettable moment was definitely orchestrated by our Lord. After a half an hour into our small group discussion, I soon realized, Susan Holloway loves to Journal❣️
Susan has been journaling her prayers for the past eighteen years and described the journaling process to be her daily inspiration. Journaling gives direction and purpose to her life.
Closeness with our Lord = Quiet Time + His Word + Self-Examination + fervent Prayer.
Let us explore the daily process for the Bible Reading Journal today. It typically takes me approximately 30 minutes to read a chapter a day and journal. It may seem a long time but our time with the Lord is priceless and memorable!
Once we read the chapter, we highlight and inscribe a selected verse or two in different translations. When I inscribe His Word, I am able to memorize it a lot easier. I then journal ‘how’ I am going to step out in obedience in practical ways.
Later I examine my heart daily so I may repent and forgive, count my blessings and maintain a prayerful lifestyle.
Cross-References allow me to dig deeper into God’s Word and Commentaries enrich my “journaling” experience.
“…but God was working in every detail. He was providing, humbling, sanctifying, forgiving, and drawing their hearts to His in the most necessary and beautiful ways.“ Whitney from Love God Greatly Ministries.
“When I read my journals, I see God’s fingerprints all over. Journals are my stones of remembrance (Joshua 4:23-24)“ Adriana Morales-Spokane.
