My usual prayer notebook is available for overhaul. I love new years and I love starting over. So what better time to overhaul the usual approach to prayer. What would be a Jubilee approach?
How about these tabs:
- Nailing it to the cross
- Debts to forgive
- New creation (the old has gone; the new has come a la 2 Corinthians 5:17)
- Bold prayers
And how about the concept of expressing gratitude every day to someone to whom I owe a debt of thanks. And marking it on my calendar. I’m big on recording things. I love charts and graphs. And so a handy-dandy, new color calendar designation (green for money, usually the debt currency) will give me a place to be sure and record the name of someone to whom I can say thanks. Something about expressing gratitude embarrasses me. This is hard to imagine already.
But I’m listening. And starting.
