31 Days of Intentional Prayer: Day 1

We are the light of the world, we are the city on a hill.” 
Those words ring true today on the first day of October. Say What!! It’s October.
I love the 31 days of blogging. It challenges me to be intentional. It challenges me to write every day.
I was praying about what I wanted to share for 31 days. I could talk about my fitness routine, or lack there of.
I could talk about my “hardships” at work and how to overcome them.
Then I just felt overwhelmed, and realized, I should pray to see what the Lord wanted me to talk about.
You may say, wait that’s a little weird. Why would you pray about this?
Because I believe God has a plan, even in the things we believe are mundane.
Then I felt a peace and knew what my subject would be. 
My prayer life is suffering, thus my whole life is suffering.
I’ve decided to change that. I ordered some prayer journals to get me through the rest of the year and all of next year.
But, just because I have something doesn’t mean I’ll use it.
So, I’ve decided to blog 31 days of intentional prayer.
What does that mean?
It means that I will intentionally pray every day – and share the prayer or the subject, or just how my prayer life is changing my life.
Prayers have power, I believe that with my whole heart.
God hears my prayers.
Day 1:
Prayer @ Work

Each day I may share a prayer that I wrote, from the Bible or somewhere else. Today's prayer has been made popular by AA and other 12-step programs, but is very applicable to my job. It's called the serenity prayer: 
"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference."

Wow, how good is that? I will be saying that prayer until it becomes a mindset! I hope you'll join me for the next 31 Days!!
