Prayer baskets should include the following items:
- Study Bible
- Pens, pencils, and highlighters
- Personal journal
- Daily Devotional
- Box of tissues
- Note cards
Optional personal items may include:
- Your favorite coffee/tea and a coffee mug
- Scented candle and a lighter
- Vase with fresh flowers
- Throw blanket
As an aside, prayer journals can be something as simple as a spiral notebook or as complex as a decorative hardbound book. Again, the key is to make it your own. Whatever you are most comfortable with and can afford will function just fine. In your prayer journal you might want to include sections for prayer requests, answered prayers, and praises. Also, be sure and leave space for your thoughts, devotions, and scripture references. Some journals also include prayer partner lists and contact information.
Do you already use a prayer basket? Please let me know what is in your basket.
Blessings for the New Year!!
