In the Old Testament, there are countless times that God’s people marked the very spot God met them and named it accordingly. They did this by forming altars or naming objects that were close by. You can also do something very similar with your prayer journal. You can mark that very spot where you saw God’s hand move in your situation with a flag.
She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have now seen the One who sees me.” 14 That is why the well was called Beer Lahai Roi; it is still there, between Kadesh and Bered. Genesis 16:13-14.
I love using old pieces of cloth and sewing scrap to use as flags in my prayer journal. You can also use ribbons. It will pretty up your prayer journal, and take you back to important places time and again.
Happy Prayer Journaling!
