I have a place in my music room to light candles for prayer. A reminder to lift my heart as I lift my voice, and a place to leave my petitions to God – not to light the candle and forget, but to light them and remember. I remember all the blessings He pours out on me daily, and I remember that He is in control, and I remember to trust that He will work all things for good for those that love Him.
Also, I bought a journal today – quite on a whim, but I couldn’t help it. It has a silhouette of a bird – I love birds – and a quote underneath:
From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another. — John 1:16
This has nothing to do with my prayer altar. I’m just sharing.
