Keeping my daily prayer list to ten people is extremely powerful. I can pray intensely and often for then. But when I have to attend to a long list, my prayer become more rote and diluted.
So today I set out for my walk with my written list of ten and my long-term list in my head. I figure that if a church service can have many parts making up the whole, so can my prayers. In fact, intercessory prayer is just one of several prayer categories. Let’s not forget praise, gratitude, confession, and forgiveness.
I hope this prayer chat has helped you. Writing it has certainly eased my dilemma. I’m very grateful.
