My heart sank as I read the exciting email.
A dear friend was writing me to thank me for my prayers. God had answered and the situation was resolved.
While I was elated for her that God had come through, as I knew He would, I felt guilty that I hadn’t given the situation as much prayer as I had promised.
In the moment I had good intentions, but between nursing and diapers, an active toddler and housework, the need got swept aside and lost in all the daily clutter.
Sadly, this episode was rerun several times over since then. Each time it bothered me more and more because I hate to break my word.
I had promised to pray.
I needed to follow through on my promises!
So, I came up with a prayer list. On it I kept a running list of needs to pray for.
One Fabulous Tip to Organize Your Prayer List
Every time someone shared a need, I would write it on my list. I would check back to see how my friends were doing.
It was very efficient!
At first I was quite proud of my little system. That is until my list became so overwhelmed with needs that I found I lacked time to adequately pray for them all.
My system needed tweaking! That’s when I turned to my index cards.
The ultimate organizing tool!
I have 8 of them.
- One is for daily prayers. I pray through The Lord’s Prayer as a guide
- The remaining 7 cards are divided up Monday through Sunday
At the top of the card is one ongoing need.
Under that I pick 4-5 additional needs to pray for each day. This way, each need or person is prayed over each week.
I have been using this system for months now, and have found it to be my best system yet!
