Author Biography–Carrol Johnson Shewmake

My pastor husband and I worked in pastoral ministry for 42 years. Now retired, we keep active in prayer ministry. We are the parents of 4 children, 8 grandchildren, and 2 great grandchildren.

I am the author of 6 books on how to grow in intimacy with God. I present seminars on that subject at women's retreats, churches, and camp meetings.

I find that reading is a great way to learn and grow in the Lord. Reading the experiences of others encourages me in my spiritual growth. My husband and I both love to read and have a large library.

Prayer Cards

It is through prayer that a relationship with God is maintained—God speaking  to us through scripture and the inward voice of the Holy Spirit—and then our response in words of prayer. We often think that we are the ones who initiate prayer—but it is never true. All our prayers are a response to the inward voice of the Spirit calling us to prayer. God desires all mankind to be saved and He is continually calling us to talk with Him. We tend to monopolize the time in prayer, leaving God little time to speak to us. When we utilize scripture in our prayer time we learn the cadence of God’s voice and find it easier to hear Him speak in our inmost being.

To encourage myself in using more scripture in prayer I made up a set of what I called ‘Yearning Verses’ on small cards to use to begin my personal prayer times. I found that cards are easier to carry along on a personal prayer walk than to carry a Bible or New Testament. When my husband and I were introduced to group Prayerwalking for the salvation of communities, I made up a set of 36 Prayerwalking cards to be divided among the groups going out on Sabbath afternoon Prayer Walking outings. Prayer partners from our Conference Prayer committee began asking for sets for themselves so I had a few more sets printed up.

When I was invited to be the speaker at a church retreat in a camp setting, I expanded my sets to include small sets on several different subjects (The Holy Spirit, Praying for our Children, Revival, Evangelism, Healing, etc.) to be used by small groups as they prayer walked in the woods and around the lake. Since that time I have also put together sets for each step of Sanctuary Prayer.

Since my personal study Bible is the NIV, these verses are all from the NIV.  I have been blessed immeasurably as I chose the scriptures for each of these card sets. I hope that you are also blessed as you put these divine words into your prayer life.
