What’s in my Prayer/War Binder & Tips to Strengthen Your Prayer Life

 

Why A Prayer Binder?

A few years back I began creating a prayer binder for myself.I wanted to create a resource to keep track of specific things I was praying for, documenting answered prayers and a tool to run to in crisis situations.One thing I’ve learned while creating my prayer binder is that it takes time.This process doesn’t happen overnight and it’s a journey.A course that we learn to embrace as we commune with the Father and grow in His word.

If you would like to create a prayer binder, you can do it for zero bucks because I’m sure you already have these items on hand.If you don’t have tools on hand trust me, it won’t cost much.

Tools You’ll Need

1. Binder-if you don’t have a binder on hand you can find one at the dollar store or anywhere you purchase school supply.My first prayer binder was a binder I repurposed from when I was a decorating consultant.I used some craft paper and decoupage to jazz it up a bit and currently use this binder for my Moms In Prayer binder.Ladies we’re creative and we should use our creativity in all things. So, be creative when it comes to making your binder.
2. Paper and Tabs– I suggest you section off your binder into different categories.Such as, family, marriage, children, church, business, community etc.This method works well for me, because who or whatever I’m focusing on in prayer, I can go to that section without any hassle.
3.Bible-Read the word of God so you can search for scriptures to apply to your prayers and be sure to not take scriptures out of context.

4.Set aside a consistent prayer time -Spending quality time with the Father to worship, pray and read His word.I love to get up early in the morning before everyone wakes up.I take my shower, get dressed and head downstairs to get my coffee before I go pray.Set a schedule that works well for you and be consistent.Being in the presence of God is wonderful and I look forward to spending that quality time with Him every morning.

5.Be honest- about what’s going on. One of the reasons it’s so important to read God’s word, it helps us learn more about Him.When we know Him we know what He hates and what He loves and we’re to hate what He hates (Psalm 97:10). We also learn the difference between sin and temptation and we’re able to address these things in our lives when they arise.

September Movie Pick: Catching Faith #Netflix #Streamteam

I’m a member of the Netflix Stream Team and the opinions shared in this article are my own.

Lately, I’ve been scrolling through the Faith & Spirituality category on Netflix, looking for something to watch. I’m not even halfway through the list of movie titles, but I have watched a few in this section.  The last movie I watched was Catching Faith. About a family, The Taylor’s that appear to have it all together. Married, stay at home mom with 2 1/2 kids…. How do you get a half a kids? LOL Anywho, everything looks perfect on the outside, but this christian family are in need of some spiritual growth. And with help from bible study, godly counsel, prayer and redirection, the Taylor family get back on spiritual track.

John & Alexa are the parents of twins.  Personally, John seems to be a great leader for his family.  Alexa appears to be going through a crisis that most of us moms seem to endure when we put our family priorities over our own spiritual and emotional needs.  One of the reasons this concerns me with, Alexa, is because I can definitely relate.  Being a mom we can get lost in the role of motherhood.  Lost and drowned out by the demands of pleasing others and not pleasing God.

Not only is Alexa dealing with her struggles, but her children are facing temptation.  Like every high school kid today, facing much temptation.  Some give in to temptation and others are able to escape it.  Catching Faith is a great movie for those of us looking to help build character and integrity in our children.  Great family movie for movie night.

Which category to do you enjoy watching movies from on Netflix?  Any favorites?
