After watching the movie, War Room, I was inspired to make a prayer wall, only mine is semi-portable. The reason it is semi-portable is because my devotional desk is in our living room right smack in the middle of my wall-to-wall library. When we have guests, I simply remove it and place it in a closet.
It's made from a 2' by 2' pegboard. First, I covered it with a couple of layers of quilt batting. Then, I covered the batting with fabric that coordinates with my living room. Afterward, I threaded a 12" piece of twine through the corners. This was difficult as I had to find the corner holes in the pegboard and then thread them through all that batting and fabric. I used a large needle and a hemostatic clamp to pull the needle through. (Honestly, there must be an easier way to do this!) Afterward, I just hung it in my living room. I absolutely love this as I have access to my Bible study library and my prayer wall. Plus, if I choose to study in my living room, I can hear our backyard waterfall from the backyard.
To utilize it, I simply use my 2" scrapbooking hole punch to make pretty circles. I write my prayer requests on them and as the LORD gives me scriptures for those prayers, I pin them next to the prayers.
I glue answered prayers into my "Praise Slambook". It's an encouragement to me right now and a powerful testimony for my family later on! Love it!
(Ok, I now realize, I need to provide pictures if I'm going to keep writing mini tutorials!)

Proverb of the Day.
I see this scripture and think of those who were raised by abusive parents. Or what about those who were never introduced to the concept of God?
Here are my thoughts. The Holy Spirit draws us to Him. Even if both or one of our parents were cruel, the Holy Spirit yearns to minister to that hurting child within.
