Hey there! I’m so thrilled that today is the first night of a 4 week Bible study I’m teaching at CypressChurch.tv on Hannah and the Power of Prayer. Over 5 years ago, I wrote this study over the course of many nights, with a sweet baby growing inside of me. I knew when I was writing that God had many plans for the study, but I didn’t know how it would all unfold.
The following summer, I held a community Bible study in my home and taught this material to a small group of 20 women. God did miraculous things in the midst of us that summer and as nervous as I was about leading a study that I had written, He is always the one who deserves the praise and glory for the power He works in us. His power unveiled gloriously and beautifully for a small group of women that summer.
Several years went by, and one day when I went on a run outdoors, as my feet pounded the pavement, God and I had a conversation. I had been asking Him the hard questions for which we don’t always feel like we receive clear answers. Like:
- What am I supposed to do for You?
- Will you please show me what you want me to do for the kingdom of Christ?
- What is my part in sharing what I’ve learned through the love of God’s Word?
And by the end of the run, I knew that I was supposed to take that summer Bible study and write an ebook. God had prepared me for that moment of realization because He had given me the tools and instruction on how to do that just months before. I love that He provided before I even knew I needed.
The Sensational Scent of Prayer was released May 2012 as a self-published ebook. Almost immediately there were requests for a paperback book and once again, God provided the tools to follow through with that request.
Today I’m giving you a sneak peek at the new ch@t prayer journal page, which is included in the Sensational Scent of Prayer Study Guide. I hope to make the Guide available to you for FREE very soon, but in celebration of a day for which God gave a vision over 5 years ago, I wanted to share the bookmark and journal page with you.

Would you pray with me for the ladies attending the study tonight? That our ears and eyes would be tuned to what the Lord has for us and we would crave a deeper prayer life and closer relationship with him as a result of the study?
By God’s grace and mercy,
