I will praise You, O Lord, among the nations;
I will sing of You among the peoples.
For great is Your love, reaching to the heavens;
Your faithfulness reaches to the skies. Psalm 57:9-10 (NIV)
So, did you find a prayer journal you like? Yesterday I encouraged everyone to grab a notebook or buy a journal to use during your quiet times with Jesus. If you haven’t found one yet, be sure to get one soon! I don’t know if God has a favorite part of my prayer journal, but I’m guessing today’s entry makes Him happy.
The EXALT part of My TEA CUPP Prayer journal is where I praise Jesus. My pen and my heart lift up Jesus with His Word. First I’ll write one of the EXALT verses I’ve underlined in my Bible, such as the one above from Psalm 57. Then I might add more to it, praising God for His love and faithfulness. This verse from Psalm 57 is actually now part of a popular song. So, I might just journal the entire song as I sing praises in my heart to the Lord…
Your love, oh Lord, reaches to the heavens.
Your faithfulness stretches to the sky.
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains.
Your justice flows like the oceans tide.
And I will lift my voice, to worship you my King.
And I will find my strength, in the shadow of your wings.

I encourage you to try journaling your prayers this week. Today let’s all EXALT Jesus in our journals, praising Him for all He is.
New International Version (NIV)
