Recently I was encouraged to write three pages every day of everything on my mind. A curious thing happened. While I started just writing everything on my mind, it very quickly turned into a prayer. All that was on my mind was offered to my Lord as a prayer.
The things that were worrying me. The things that I was happy about. The things that I wanted to do. The things I was frustrated that I did. All of the thoughts on my mind turned into prayer. It reminded me of 1 Thessalonians 5:17 – Pray without ceasing. All of life is prayer.
I can offer my thoughts, my writing, my diary, my written prayers, my words out loud and in my head – all to Him. He knows all of my thoughts anyway! Psalm 139:2 (MSG) says “you know what I am thinking”. And all of it – the good, the bad, and the ugly – can be offered to Him in prayer.
He knows what I am thinking and He loves me. He listens to me and He loves me. How amazing is that! What joy comes from being known and being loved. What rest I can have from my worries, my frustrations. He knows and He loves me no matter what.
Be encouraged my friend – all of life is our prayer to Him who loves us!
