There is so much I want to pray for - and that sometimes I’ve been asked to pray for or about - and before I can stay focused for very long with one batch of intentions, more things happen. Disasters, people’s illnesses or problems, needs in the world, needs in my own life. I guess I should start a list like in a little notebook and carry it with me. But I don’t want it to be too decipherable, if you know what I mean, because there are some things - such as conversions - if it fell out of my purse and the person in question picked it up and recognized their initials or whatever, it’d open a can of worms. :eek:
My memory is so over-full, for many reasons. I don’t want to fail to fulfill these prayer intentions. I feel like they “fall off the conveyor belt” after a few days as new ones come up. Yes, God knows I thought of the intention at the beginning, but I want to pray persistently, hence the idea of keeping a book or other type of record. (I don’t have a smartphone or tablet at this time, so for now I’m thinking of low-tech paper.)
Anyway, I get frustrated with myself for forgetting prayer intentions so easily. Ideas from those who’ve been in this position?
