MMM Prayer :)

Recently I've been reading a series of books called The Yada Yada Prayer Group. These are fairly popular among Christian Chick Lit so perhaps some/many of you have heard of these books. Well, a character named Nony is always praying scripture. For example, taking a psalm and applying it to what is happening in her life, or someone else's life in the prayer group.

For some reason, I had never done this before. Until two days ago. Wow! It's POWERFUL. I'm not so sure why prayer keeps seeming to be this novel idea to me. I know in my mind prayer is powerful, but I'm finally understanding in my heart how powerful it is. God really is listening. Jesus died so I could have this open communication with Him and the Father at all times. And when words aren't there? The Holy Spirit intervenes for me. That's love if I've ever known any kind of love.

I delight in discovering new things about this Christian walk of faith. Being saved only 1 year and 10 months is such a blessing. I still am in awe of many things. I hope I never lose this. So many of my friends and family always remark upon how me becoming a new Christian revitalized their own faith as they saw me living out my new faith. That's encouraging :) and I never want to stop being that light for people. I never want to feel that any part of this walk is "old" and I'm too "above it."

Even on the cloudiest of days, the sun is still shining up there, we just have to find it (:

Hey Sami! Thanks for commenting on my blog! Sorry it took me so long to write back. How cool that you live here in the Northwest!! You are the first blogger in the Northwest that I have ever met! I love how you use smiley faces. ;o) I tend to use too many exclamation points and italics. :) Good to "meet" you!

In Christ Alone, Brooke

Psalms DO make excellent prayers. the great thing about them is you can make them personal to whatever you're feeling or going through. there seems to be a Psalm to fit every emotion.
