September Prayer Journal Prompts

Here in Missouri, September brings cooler temperatures (yea!) and plenty of rain.

As the busyness of August fades, I look forward to more prayer and quiet time with God.

Last month, I shared my first set of prayer journal prompts. Having those prompts planned out ahead of time made a huge difference in my ability to write in my prayer journal each day.
