Books of Prayers

When I have my prayer time each morning I don’t pray out loud or say the words in my head. Because I am a writer, I write to God at the start of the day. I pour out my feelings in the written word. I include praise and worship, confession and the need for forgiveness. Then I pray for myself and for others for the coming day. The emphasis for any day one can be praise, contrition or help for a looming problem. I don’t re-read my prayers (as we can’t with the spoken word) And as each book gets full I put it to one side. Eventually they will be thrown away.

My friend came up with a lovely thought. When I get to heaven God will show me the stack of my written booklets, preserved in His eternal heaven.
