The pages are filled with beautiful illustrations of flowers in pastel colours, accompanied by verses of Scripture, the Trinity Prayer and space to journal.
The introduction to the journal says:
“A lot of people wonder why God was so silent in biblical times but now seems so silent.
God is not silent.
God’s voice is just as chatty today as it was in biblical times and many modern-day Christians can attest to the voice of God in their lives.
God speaks to us.
God speaks to us every day, every hour.
The question is not whether God speaks - it’s whether we are listening. It really comes down to whether we can find the ‘pause’ in our busy schedules to wait in silence for God’s voice to manifest in our awareness.”
The journal was designed by Francine Pirola, who shares: “The prayer journal came about through a personal search for an effective resource to assist me in my battle with busyness. In world saturated with fascinating distractions readily at my fingertips, I’m like a magpie – transfixed by the ‘bling’ and compulsively distracted by it.
“My intention with this journal is to create a portable and beautiful space into which I can retreat for quiet conversation with God. A space where worldly distractions are displaced by the present beauty in my hands.”
