When I first wrote out my twelve goals of twelve this year, I had no idea how I was going to accomplish some of it.
This goal is the one I should be tackling first as there is nothing more important than serving the Lord and how to serve Him better, yet I admit that I have a hard time “scheduling” a devotional time.
This post goes over my plan to devote time to prayer.
This book was a gift, and as many times of life happen, I didn’t open the book to read it (or I don’t recall opening it) until January 2016 – just over ten years after receiving it.
Judge me if you will, but now is the time.
My goal this year in this “category” is to pray twelve intentional prayers.
By just skimming the contents of this book, it appears there are at least 31.
As this book is on my list of books to read this year, I will be selecting twelve of the prayers, or perhaps fewer, to write out and read over again and again.
I plan on trying to schedule my devotional time during my lunch hours at least two times a week. I also want to get into a better habit of reading on Sunday nights, and this book will be one of the first on that list.
My goal will be met on a tangible basis by intentionally writing out twelve prayers in a notebook to look over, and write notes on if those prayers get answered, and if not, know that it’s all in God’s timing anyway.
I am in constant prayer for my children’s safety, health and overall well being, but I know I could be both praying more for them, and for more specific things that so many others ask for, when they reach out to ask for prayer.
That’s what I intend to accomplish this year.
Do you have any spiritual goals you’re working on? Any devotionals that seem to be calling your name for the year?
I would love to know.
Thanks for reading as always,
