This beautiful stained wooden box with the word Faith engraved on the lid holds prayer cards that provide a place to write down your prayers on one side and record God’s answers on the other. In the days and years to come, you can re-read these cards and see the faithfulness of God unfolding throughout your life. The box measures 6″ x 3 1/2″ and holds 24 4 7/8″ x 3″ prayer cards, six each of four designs.
I have been researching and writing a new workshop for Blessings Unlimited titled Leaving a Prayer Legacy through journaling techniques. Of course, when God gives me a project like this, He has lessons for me to learn and so I have been learning…
Prayer is important to God – not because God needs us to pray, but because we need to communicate with our Heavenly Father. I cannot imagine going through my day without talking with those I love, yet there are days that go by that I do not communicate with my Lord. If my loved ones treated me in the same way, I would be so disappointed. God is so gracious with me.
The next several posts I am going to share several of the important lessons I have been learning about prayer… but today I want to leave you with a verse that I have been pondering since I began this project…
“Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.” Jeremiah 32:17
Nothing is too hard for God – I can read this and agree, but in reality I am questioning if truly NOTHING is too hard?? In my heart, I know that I believe that nothing is too hard for God, but in my head I think … You could do anything God, but will you? As I have been writing and teaching this workshop, I ask the women to write down a prayer that they believe is too hard for God and then to offer this prayer to the Lord. The task of obedience in writing down a prayer and presenting it to the Lord is an act of faith. It has been powerful to hear the women share the prayers that they write.
So, I have been continually thinking about what I believe is too hard for God — and every time a worrisome issue comes to my mind, I ask — is this too hard for my God? As I remember how God has worked in my life, I am reminded again and again just how faithful God is and I again realize that truly NOTHING IS TOO HARD FOR YOU!
What is going on in your life that you think is too hard for God? Write it out and present it to the Lord. Keep Jeremiah 32:17 in front of you (write it over and over again on notecards and keep it in front of you in your kitchen, bathroom, purse, etc to remind you of God’s power). Share with me what you think is too hard for God and I will pray for you while I pray for myself. I want to be a woman who truly believes and lives as if NOTHING IS TOO HARD FOR GOD!
