One practical way to begin to connect with the Lord is through prayer journaling. This simply begins with you dating the top of the page, choosing a question that you would like to ask the Lord in prayer (we have included some examples below), writing down the question as you ask it in prayer and then beginning to write down what you receive from the Lord. It could be a scripture, a word, a picture, a song lyric, a sentence, or a paragraph. Once you feel that you have received what He had to show you, thank Him for communicating with you and continue the conversation!
