This is something I think I will add to all of my prayer journals in the future because I found it to be so powerful and helpful to my prayer life. There are times in prayer that we seek an answer from the Lord. And sometimes that answer will come from those we consider to be our mentors in life, especially if they are people of faith. I am blessed to have several women from the past and present to consult.
I used some cute little post-its that are formed as thought bubbles. I chose these to write my mentors’ names upon so that when I turn to this page, I will be reminded of things they said to me or modeled for me in their faith walk.
Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. 4 Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5 to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. 2 Timothy 2:3-5
The best place to put their names is in the chapter for Ears that Hear where I talk about surrounding yourself with wise people. I highly recommend it. Next time, you are struggling, just turn to that page and meditate on the godly counsel these women have imparted into your life.
Happy Prayer Journaling!
