projectblessed Prayer Pledge Day 11

As we grow together as a prayer community, we also will each grow individually as we create space within ourselves for quiet prayer. In the words of St. Therese of Lisieux, “For me prayer is a surge of the heart, it is a simple look towards Heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.” This week, our prayer prompts will focus on cultivating the quiet space within our hearts that call out to God.

Comment below with your thoughts:

Where in your day do you seek quiet? How do you turn your heart toward Heaven in prayer? Who do you turn to as a model for forming the habit of recognizing God in your days?

or, simply answer:

Did you pray today?

    Prayed today! Always a gamechanger when I do. I struggled a little bit early in January as I was still traveling and made that an excuse, but I can easily say that there is a huge difference in my outlook on days that I pray vs. days that I don’t.

    Prayed this morning after I got up. In the middle of the night when pregnancy insomnia was at it’s worst I just kept repeating, “Jesus I trust in you.”

    I seek the quiet after I get home and eat dinner, and my mom is my model for helping me to recognize God throughout my day. Today, I prayed for my mom.

    I use the time after work when traveling home I choose the peace and quiet instead of listening to the radio. I thank God for the ability to work as many people are unable due to health conditions.

    I prayed this morning after a particularly difficult time with my toddler! I prayed for mother Mary to renew my heart.

    The roads were really scary as I drove to work this morning, so instead of listening to music to calm my nerves, I repeated Hail Marys for most of my drive. It brought me a lot more peace than expected, and I felt safer 🙂
