practicing prayer {day #1}

today’s the first day of this new series! thank you so much for joining me!

today i want to talk about the purpose behind this series.

prayer is always something that i wish i was better at. sometimes hard things happen and all of a sudden i find myself  praying a ton-and i wonder, why don’t i pray like this all the time? other times bad things happen and i get mad at God when He doesn’t answer my prayer. sometimes life is just peachy and i don’t even think to pray. and that humbles me because the only way to have a relationship with God is to pray. so this journey is for me to learn how to be better at prayer and hopefully i’ll learn practice how to be more consistent.

and i want to share this with you because:

  • 1.  my purpose statement states that the only reason i blog is to share with you what God is doing in my life in order to glorify Him. i do that through art and design and sharing with you my thoughts and heart.
  • 2. i do not want to be like the hypocrites that Jesus talks about in Matthew 6 who are standing up in the crowd, praying to be seen. i don’t mean for this to be like that at all!  i want you to know that. i don’t really plan on typing out prayersg on here… just sharing with you my journey in learning about it.
  • 3. if anyone wants to join me in thinking about and learning how to pray more, i’d love to have the company! if you’d rather not see all this talk about prayer… don’t worry, i’ll still be here in November with more normal things, so i’ll see ya then, no hard feelings. 🙂

my goal is to break this series up into 4 parts for these 4 weeks::the why, the how, the what/who, and the when. i feel like i’m writing some elementary story. isn’t that how you always would start one of those assignments when you were a kid? haha. but hopefully, looking at it that way we can get a little deeper into it. i’m not promising anything super awesome or brilliant because i’m just learning it myself. i’m not any sort of teacher in this! but  i appreciate being able to share this experience along side you 🙂

thanks for being here, friends.

    I was thinking tonight how I don’t really pray the way God intended. I’ve noticed it’s been all about me lately and I’d love to change that – found you via links on The Nester. Excited to read your journey!

      Thanks so much for commenting and sharing your heart! I can’t promise that I know anything special about prayer but I’m excited you’ll be learning along side of me. Please don’t hesitate to share anything God shares with you!

    I love seeing that you and a couple others have chosen prayer for your topic this month! I’m focusing on prayer for the hurting on my blog. I love the idea of learning to be better at prayer. I’ll be following along with you!
