Affirmative Prayer

Recently I viewed the movie War Room.  It was a movie based on the power of prayer.  Moreover the movie outlined an elderly woman’s prayer life and strategies.  The strategies or techniques of prayer shown in the movie paralleled with fighting for the desires of our heart in prayer, just like we do in a physical fight.  The idea was that when having a physical fight, one uses certain strategies if they want to win.  The same goes for prayer.

I am a believer in praying affirmative prayers.  I started keeping a prayer journal in 2011. I begin by thanking God for receiving the things I prayed for. I record my prayers that I make for myself and others believing it will happen.   When the prayers have been answered I check them off. The next day I give thanks for those prayers that have been answered.  I list them one by one.

Periodically I will go back and scroll my prayer journal for prayers that are still out there and ask again believing it will be granted. When things look bleak at times, I work hard to remain in a position of prayer and stay focused on the outcome. It has it’s challenges such as being impatient or wanting to give up, but staying committed to the process is worth it.  So after a bout with worry or grief, I bounce back quickly and get back in the ring.  I have witnessed too many answered prayers to give up now.

Thanksgiving. Pray. Believe. Write.

Thanksgiving. Pray. Believe. Write.

Thanksgiving. Pray. Believe. Write.

Joyfully until next time,
