My Prayer Journal
A friend gave me a beautiful journal with a prayer dated January 1, 2014. I held on to this journal without writing one word in it. I read her handwritten prayer many times. I finally wrote my first entry on September 27, 2015 acknowledging how I had held on to this beautiful gift. By writing my prayers on paper, they became more meaningful and real. They were no longer repetitions. The prayers were intentional and specific requests for God's wisdom and an act of my obedience. One of those prayers was to provide me with a new professional opportunity. I wrote that prayer on November 12. On November 24, I had a phone interview after applying for job within the same week of writing my prayers. Later the same day I was offered a face-to-face interview.
My face-to-face interview was scheduled the following Friday. I had applied for many jobs in the past, had a couple of inquiries and one interview. I tried not to get too excited about this job interview. Rejection can get the best of you, if you allow it. I receive daily Bible verses on my phone which is one way, I stay connected to God's Word when my days are busy. On the morning of my interview, I read my daily verse which was Psalms 37:4. It brought me to tears. It was God's way of telling me He was going to answer my prayers. The following Monday I received a voicemail offering me the job.
My message to you is to have faith, trust God will answer your prayers and believe His word. He has provided financial provisions for me to honor my Faith Promise which has to be fulfilled in March. Writing down my prayers proved to be meaningful to me. He answered my prayers and confirmed it with a verse.
I'm looking forward to 2016. I will commit to another Faith Promise in March and continue to write prayers in my journal. My faith is growing...everyday. It's a part of my journey.
