I write my prayers down. Not every day, but often. Helps me keep track of everything I want to talk to Jesus about. And lately I have been able to start with lots and lots of praise. It takes Him awhile sometimes, but He does come through and I can see progress lately–for me, for family, for friends. It can be hard to rejoice the little steps when you are wanting big ones. But it is worth it. The joy that fills your heart with gratitude is a fantabulous thing.
