I was raised partially by my grandmother. She was a woman of God that could pray you through anything. As I grew up I wondered how…

How did she pray for hours?

How she managed to prioritize her prayer life?

How her prayer life was so effective?

Once Was Lost Prayer Shawl by Dana Pittman


I do not have all the answers to my questions. However, my quest to find my way closer to God in prayer has led me down the road less traveled. Yet I still find myself in the same position, in direct communication with God.

One way that I increased my prayer time is through crocheting prayer shawls. Here are a few pictures:

Crochet Prayer Shawl Inspired by Tradition Jewish Prayer Shawl by Dana Pittman



During my quiet time I pray and crochet. (smile) Over the years I have taught classes and workshops about growing through using handcrafts.

Along with this wonderful practice I journal my prayers and the prayers of others. Which led to me designing a prayer journal with some of my personal templates and plenty of space to capture your prayers.

I'm excited to announce my prayer journal…My Heart to His is now available on Amazon.com.


Question: Do you journal your prayers? If so, how does it help? If not, would you consider trying it?
