The other day, I was thinking about how last semester my friend would challenge me to pray differently than I usually do. I remember that being a really interesting experience and I thought I’d try it again. One night, when I was praying, God gave me the idea for a prayer jar. You probably think of a prayer jar as a place where you keep your prayer requests. Mine, however, is not like that. Mine is where I keep prayer challenges. It could be a challenge to pray in a certain way, or about a certain thing. When I sat down to write out the challenges, I only had a few in mind. I ended up with 16! I am both excited and nervous to take on these challenges. Tomorrow morning, I will pick my first slip of paper. As I’m writing this, it occurs to me that I could post about each challenge and what I do. I might just do that. For now, here’s a picture of the slips of paper with the challenges, and my Prayer J.A.R. It’s an acronym because I decided that J.A.R. stands for Jesus Accepts Requests. Let me know what you think of this idea, and if you do something similar. Also, feel free to send me new challenges!
P.S. excuse the white boxes-I wasn’t able to remove them
