Do you ever feel like when summer comes your rhythms and routines change? For example, the way that I like to read my Bible and pray during the school year just doesn't fit with my kids being off school during the summer. And even if you don't have kids at home, summertime can introduce a completely different dynamic in your schedule!That’s why we are spending these summer months praying through the Pauline Epistles and digging deep into God's Word.This summer in our Patreon Prayer Community we are getting creative with our Bible habits! In our Patreon community, I will be posting a Bible study video tutorial every month to show you some of my favorite creative ways to get into God’s word time is short or when my rhythm is kind of out of whack.Just because the season changes doesn’t mean we can’t continue praying prayers of REST and saturating ourselves in Scripture! If you’d like to join us you can sign up to become a Patreon prayer partner today when you go to prayersofrest.com/patreon.Lastly, If you’re looking for a fun and flexible Bible study for this summer, check out my Bible study He is Enough on the book of Colossians. With a flexible plan that allows you to choose whether you want to spend 5 mins or 30 to 45 minutes on your lesson for the day, creative study tips, and coloring pages, this study would be the perfect way to start off your summer Bible study habit!Our friends at moody publishers have been so generous to give us 40% off when you shop at moodypublishers.com use the code ENOUGH at checkout.These prayer episodes are a bit shorter than usual but feel free to hit pause if you need more time to pray.

Refresh: Using Your Nose in Prayer

Have you ever thought of using your nose in prayer? When God gave Moses instructions for building the tabernacle, He included a custom blend of spices to be diffused in God’s courts every day. Just think: every time worshipers came to pray, they smelled this distinct fragrance that would always make them think of God. Recent scientific research reveals that our sense of smell is closely linked with memory! Just like whipping up a batch of grandma’s cookies brings her face to mind, so connecting a specific smell with our prayer time will also remind us of God’s faithfulness. So try lighting a scented candle or diffusing an essential oil while your pray. You might just be surprised how you come to treasure the smell of God’s presence in your life.Thanks for listening! If you try this creative prayer idea, I’d love to hear about it! You can leave a review on iTunes, tag me @asheritah on Instagram, or leave me a voice message at prayersofrest.com.
