{Apply Sharpie to the Hand}

 One area of my life that I have been working on is. . .The Prayer One. . .Y'all I cant help it. . .  I get sleepy.  I am ashamed, as I should be.  I have gotten much better about praising AND praying throughout my day.  I believe I should be worshipping, praying, learning, thinking, or speaking of the Lord at all times.  One or the other.  Or all at the same time. The Bible says:
1 Corinthians 1:4 I give thanks to my God always for you because of the grace of God that was given you in Christ Jesus,
Ephesians 6:18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,
Philippians 1:3-4 I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy,
Colossians 1:3 (KJV) We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,
1 Thessalonians 5:17 pray without ceasing
I know you see the same pattern I see.  Always.
Although I do bathe regulary, Sharpie is a challenge to take off.  I am going to write a letter from the persons name I am praying for on my hand. . . with a Sharpie. . . to serve as I reminder for me to pray for this person.  It will not wear off immediately so I will continue to pray without ceasing until it fades.  Slow fade (love that song, btw). 
Its just what I am going to do.  Be intentional. . .improve my prayer life. . .its what I am about.
