It’s hard to write. I know. Some people find writing too labor intensive, too much work, or they can’t think of anything to write about. I enjoy writing and I have many journals dating back to when I was a teenager. A lot of words and doodling on a piece of blank paper soon became my prayers when I got older. It’s amazing to let your thoughts come to life with words on paper. The art of writing something down has power. It does not have to be poetic, or grammatically correct. If you take a few moments to write out your prayer for the day, your thoughts, intentions, and emotions; your pen will make a spiritual record of what you are physically and emotionally experiencing. You can then sit back and use it as a touchstone to draw strength, energy, courage, grace, and wisdom. Just start writing what comes to mind and that is your prayer for the day–spiritual encouragement for the soul.
