As you know, I have kept Prayer Journals for a lot of years. I encourage you to do so, too. It's just a lined notebook in which I put quotations from scriptures and articles I like, and prayers people request. What is does for me is provide a wonderful compass of where I am at on my journey with Jesus, how much I have grown as I try to keep Jesus at the center of my life.
"The Lord is near to the broken hearted, and saves the crushed in spirit." (Psalm 34:18)
"I sought the Lord, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears." (Psalm 34:4)
Episcopal Presiding Bishop, Michael Curry, encourages all of us to adopt "The Way of Love." To consider ways we can keep Jesus at the center of our lives.
Adopt a practice he says that include turn, learn, pray, worship, bless, go, and rest. He gave me a lot to think about and do. Why don't you give it a try?
We have nothing to lose and everything to gain: Jesus.
Blessings and love, Fr. Jack.
