If that is all you do, you will not get the full benefit of what you spent your time doing. You must save your notes in a way that will allow you to go back and refresh your memory of the important things God impressed on you and the applications you found for your life. The second page of this document will give you helpful information about storing your notes and coding your Bible so that later you can find just the right note.
Scott Berglan, Christian blogger, husband, father, church planter, and pastor, discusses note-taking as an important life skill, one that produces a record of how you responded to God's message. Because of the importance of this record, a good note-taking method must include a storage and retrieval system. In this article, Pastor Berglan describes how he uses Dragon Dictation and Evernote, two apps on his phone, to archive his notes for future use and study.

The original purpose of Pray 31 was to help Christians to pray fervently and strategically for America during the month of October, 2012. However, in light of all the things that happened in 2012, such as the mass shootings in Colorado and Conneticut, the two political parties at war with each other, and the government being unresponsive to the nation's people, I feel that prayer is needed every day of the year, not just one month of the year. God wants His people to pray, and He has provided an open line of communication. Through prayer, we have access to God at any time and in any place. I hope that you will join me in praying for America every day of the year. Like the Hebrew people of old, we also need to humble ourselves and pray and seek God's face and turn from our wicked ways. Click the Pray 31 button below for a PDF calendar for 31 days of prayer for our country. During the thirty one days, we will pray for each state and territory and for our government and the spiritual condition of our country. When you finish with the first 31 days, simply start over with day one. Continue through each month of the year.
