Ever been stuck in a rut? I grew up in the Midwest where we would get some pretty heavy snowfalls. As a kid, I thought that was awesome! We lived right next to a ditch that was great for sledding, and riding to the bottom was so much fun! It was not fun, though, when I’d […]

"I'll pray for you" is easy to say. Following through on that promise is often much harder. Prayer is a most intimate, personal time with God. Yet that isolated time on our knees can become one of the most important ways to build relationships with other people -- when we remember to mention their needs and requests. Embedding prayer into a morning "digital routine" (that daily habit of checking e-mail, facebook, twitter, etc.) can help. Sending your requests through the right channels makes it more likely that you will find your requests in someone else's digital routine.
A paper prayer journal has never worked well for me. There's just too much maintenance in it. New requests are added; old ones are answered; one-time requests for surgeries or evangelistic meetings eventually expire. The thought of tracking all those changes with mere pen and paper is craziness to a geek like me. No, a useful prayer journal must be electronic. For me, it just must. See how I use Evernote for now as my electronic prayer journal, and let me know what you use.
