During this fortnight, Matt will be posting about some different prayer practices to help us continue our exploration of prayer and fasting. The posts will be short and, for the most part, practically-focused.
Just as we tend to absorb more from lectures or sermons when we take notes, so too do we absorb more of the Scriptures and of God’s word to us in prayer when we handwrite them.
The process is simple, even obvious: Either choose a portion of Scripture and write it out on a bit of paper, or write out your prayers as you say them. Both practices force the pray-er to slow down as they read or pray, reflecting more deeply on what they write.
