My Momspace/War Room Update

And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.  But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. Matthew 6:5-6

Since I have moved to our temporary new home, a new space has opened up for me….an entire bedroom. What a blessing even though I must share this space with someone now.  And I am absolutely thankful for that.  There is no greater joy than beginning and ending my day with my husband.  And now we have a special space that is just for our relationship with the LORD.

It all came together quite nicely.  It started when my desk broke and I found a table with 4 chairs for $25 over 2 years ago.  I was blessed with a beautiful new dining table and able to use the table every morning before my house gets stirring.

Then I purchased some cork squares at Walmart for $6 as well to make my Prayer Wall.  This where my prayers go up.  These are handwritten or printed scriptures from pinterest or Internet searches as well as The War Room strategic verses needed to protect me and mine. This is a work in progress.  Updates will happen frequently!!!

Finally, I created my bag of tricks from the beautiful basket my sister in law gave us for our wedding.  In it are journals, markers, pencils, stickers, tags and notecards I use for journaling, researching my prayers, and my children’s prayer jars (the 3 big Mason jars on the table pictured above- follow up blog coming).

My favorite part of this process is being able to use the Bible my husband purchased for me for Christmas because I keep giving mine away! This one will stay with me for sure.

It’s really not hard to carve out Your space.  Maybe it’s just a chair, time alone in bed, a lawn chair.  Wherever it is, it is yours and you will reap the rewards of a praying life.   Mine started as just a table alone and now God blessed me with an entire room that I share with a man who loves me as Christ loved the church.  A man I submit to as the church does to Christ.  And together in this space we will fight the battles of our life and the lives of our loved ones on our knees and lift up our praises in a secret, sacred space together.

For this reason, I am blessed.

Goodnight and God bless!

One thought on “My Momspace/War Room Update

  1. How wonderful to have a whole room set aside to use for prayer! I have a small nook in my room with a table, lamp and rocking chair. I try to keep a prayer journal and some books and my Bible close. Lately, though, I’ve neglected my little space but I do spend time in prayer while in bed. I also talk to God throughout the day, but I want to set aside more regular times for intentional prayer. Prayer is more powerful than we realize and it’s something God has commanded us to do. Blessings to you, Myra!
