Works for Me Wednesday
This is my first Works for Me Wednesday post.....be sure to check out my daughter's site: Rocks in My Dryer....she hosts this wonderful event! I notice that all the others have that cute little logo on their post, and I don't know how to do that yet, but I'm sure Shannon will help me with it.
Anyway....my WFMW idea is to organize your prayer list. I know that sounds awfully mechanical for some, but it really does "work for me." I have some things I pray for daily. My other categories are Monday - people with long-term health problems or people who are grieving; Tuesday - specific ministries, including my pastor and staff; Wednesday - people with spiritual needs; Thursday - friends' requests; Friday - my family. (That doesn't mean I don't pray on Saturday or Sunday, but I don't always have a sit-down quiet time those days. ) This way I can remember to pray for people. I keep these requests on small note cards in a file box with dividers for the days. I know if I didn't organize this way, I'd never pray for some of the people on my list. It's been a real blessing for me.
