This is an intro for Advent Prayer Journal Prompts for Busy Christians – a post by Amy from Prayer, Wine, Chocolate.
I have a confession to make: I just googled “when does Advent start”?
So it probably isn’t a big surprise that I get lost in the Christmas music, the shopping, visiting Santa and all the twinkle lights.
Something tells me, I’m not the only one.
I would probably enjoy Christmas even more if I took the time to enjoy Advent!
At the same time, my responsibilities as a mom and the opportunities to make joyful memories with my loved ones, will not be far from my mind.
So, I decided to make a list of Advent Prayer Journal Prompts for those of us that feel super busy, but want to make a true effort to remember that Jesus is the Reason for the Season.
Prayer Journal Prompts
These are just a few of the many amazing prayer journal prompts found on Prayer Wine Chocolate’s blog post.
♥Write out the Saint Andrew Novena Prayer (or cut it out and paste it in your journal)!
♥Write out the words to an Advent Hymn such as O Come, O Come Emmanuel or Soon and Very Soon.
♥Use an Advent journaling kit to inspire and motivate you!
♥Glue a Christmas Card picture of the Three Wise Men to a page, write a prayer combined with your “to-do” list of the day. For example: Dear Lord, Help me to seek you in every act I perform today. Help me to seek you in washing the dishes, in paying my bills, in writing out my Christmas cards and in caring for my elderly loved one . . .
♥Keep it simple: write Jesus a letter.
♥Paste photographs from past Christmas seasons. Write a sincere Thank You letter to Jesus for the people, moments and memories. Once you give a ton of thanks, ask the Lord to bless your friends and family with a peaceful holiday.
♥Copy the Responsorial Psalm from the first Sunday of Lent in Your Journal.
