Bob Allums, Director of seeJesus's A Praying Life Ministry, joins Liz Voboril for this interview with Lydia Leggett and David Bostrom, both A Praying Life Trainers.
"A prayer card is a non-complicated, actual note card where you start writing down things that you're asking of the Lord so that you can remember. It's a tool that is helpful for keeping track of what you're asking the Lord to do."
"One of the real benefits of prayer cards is that they help you pay better attention to what God might be doing."
"I think of Colossians 4:2, ‘Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.’ Prayer cards help me be watchful because in our distracted world it’s hard to be watchful without a record of what you're asking the Lord to do. As you watch the story unfold, you're able to be more thankful because you've got a record of what you've seen the Lord do, not necessarily answers to prayer that you just check off, but a story developing that feeds thanksgiving and faith in your own heart.”
