Prayer Journal [Jul. 22nd, 2008|08:56 pm]
LiveJournal Catholics


Hi, I'm utterly new to this community and have a question. I'm looking for somewhere that I can access prompts for my prayer journal. I want to keep one, but have trouble focusing on what to write about. I know there are places that have secular prompts, but I'd like to find one that has sacred ones. Can anyone help?

Choose a scripture passage or psalm that you like. Write your own thoughts and feelings. Leave space so that you can add more as you think about it. In my handwritten journals I only write on the right side of the notebook and add thoughts on the left with an arrow going to the topic on the right which it pertains to.

But honestly, I've been at this for 20 years and don't know of any 'recipe' type books such as you're seeking.

You can also listen to your favorite hymn or write it out and think deeply about what is really being said.

I suppose you could also use religious books like St. Therese of Lisieux's autobiography. I found it very inspirational.

Forgive me for being so late, but I'm actually trying to track down brotherskeeper1. brotherskeeper1, your privacy settings are not allowing me to reply to your message or post a comment, thus I can't respond. I'm not certain you'll even read this, but it's my best shot at responding to you.

Again, my deepest apologies for intruding, suburban_mom, and I hope everything has worked out for you.

I received your email response. I don't have my comment setting to block any posts in any community ... honestly, your are the first person to bring this to my attention.

Not communities per se, but the message you sent to my inbox, specifically. I tried to respond, LJ would not allow me to send it due to your privacy settings. I then tried to post the message as a comment to your journal, to the entry dated January 5th, 2008. LJ said your comments were set to a friend's only status. I believe this status may also have been the problem with the private messaging system. Or perhaps I'm doing something wrong?

I'm sorry I'm such a bother, but I didn't want you to think I was ignoring you.
