One of my most popular blog posts this year was this one, about the little prayer diary I found unexpectedly helpful.
It didn’t score as many hits as this post, or this, and gained no comments, unlike this one, but I was approached by a Christian radio station and invited to do an interview about it, and it’s the one I’ve had the most personal comments on.
Several of my friends have told me that they, too, struggle to find the time, focus and self-discipline to pray consistently. Having a small, dated space to write my prayers in – a micro-journal if you will – was simple, measurable and achievable. I was successful at it, and success breeds success, so before long the weeks had slipped away and I’d been praying day after day for months.
A couple of people have found diaries of their own and given it a try (how’s it going?), and I thought as a last giveaway of the year I’d buy a couple of small diaries – probably from a charity shop, so the money also goes to a good cause – and send them out.
So, you know the drill – leave me a comment if you’d like to be in with a chance of winning one.
I’ll draw names from a hat this Friday, 11th Dec at 9am London time and notify the winners by replying to their comment and sending an email, so do come back on Friday and check if it’s you! I can’t guarantee getting it to you in time for Christmas, but hopefully by 1st Jan it will find you!
I hope it will kick-start your prayer life like it has kick-started mine.
