If you have heard me talk at all about the prayer journals for even a minute, you know that they were designed during my pregnancy. Being both a hypochondriac and very sensitive to my body, I knew the only way I’d survive pregnancy was through lots of prayer and organizing my bajillion prayer requests was no small task so I designed myself a little organizational tool that you know as the prayer journals. The 9 months became an incredible journey and a time I experience the most growth I’ve ever experienced in my faith.
Today I thought I’d share the list of the things I actually prayed for during the last month before she was due.
