How do you pray for people in your community or church?
Whether you are in leadership or not, you are often asked (or often offer) to pray for individuals. My question for discussion is how do we do that and what balance is there between digital and analogue?
FWIW I used to use a prayer note on Logos Bible software, and did my round of readings and so on with the weekly list. I mean I prayers for these ten people in Monday, these ones on Friday, and different teams, say, on other days.
The problem was the gap between my focus On getting through a list, and actually spending time with the people on my mind as I prayed.
Recently I have reverted to an analogue list, we used to call it paper, and this has helped my prayers though the number prayed for is greatly reduced. Used daily, mostly, it helps me fulfil my hasty promise ”I will pray for you”!
A colleague uses a wunderlist and keeps it digital. Ideas?
For what it is worth, here is how my double sided cards look before use.
