If you are like me, you mean to pray, you plan to pray, and you find yourself falling into bed at the crack of midnight having failed to pray.
I've been thinking of ways to incorporate more prayers into my life.
The other night, as I was getting ready for bed, I noticed the TBR stack on my bedside table. I am a big believer in bookmarks, having been a librarian. I hate to see a book smacked facedown, pages sprawled open, spine all but crying at the strain. I use bookmarks.
And it hit me. I should use prayer cards from missionaries either my church or Peter and I support as my bookmarks. Then, when I open the books, I will see their cards, and remember to pray for them.
Then I thought I could expand this idea. I receive printed bookmarks from author friends with their books listed on the front. I can also remember to pray for these author friends and their ministries when I find them in a book. Also, I can write the names of family members, government officials, church friends, on the backs of these bookmarks. When I open a book, there is the reminder for me to pray.
Anything I can do to nudge my mind to more prayer is a good thing.
How do you remember to pray?
