For my birthday this year, my husband gave me the most awesome gift; a War Room. It’s a bit more than a War Room actually. It is basically my own room devoted to prayer, blogging and filming. I had originally just asked for a small corner in our large walk-in closet as a War Room but he went above and beyond and converted our spare bedroom.For my birthday this year, my husband gave me the most awesome gift; a War Room #prayer Click To Tweet
So let me introduce you to my new War Room!
Dave spent the weekend clearing the room out and painting it white to match my aesthetic of nice, clean, black and white along with pink…which is my signature color! (Yep..a little Steel Magnolias reference there!)
This was no easy task as this room had been basically used as a storage room since we moved in 6 months ago so this was the first time it had been painted!
He then got me some fabric for the wall behind my desk to use as a backdrop for filming but after a day or two we decided it really didn’t fit well with the rest of the room. So, we opted for a scripture decal instead.
Let me just tell you now…if you have not ever applied one of these decals…be prepared!! They are NOT easy to put up!!
The letters want to stick to the paper and not the wall so be sure you have plenty of time and a nice straight-edged tool to use!
But it came out beautiful!! And it makes for an awesome backdrop for filming videos!!
Then the decorating began! We moved my desk from my master bedroom in to the room for me to sit at when blogging. We picked up some inexpensive black frames at the Dollar Tree and I printed off some hand lettering and some great printable for War Rooms that I found for free online or created using Canva. I blurred them out in the photo since I really cannot remember the site I got them from and I don’t want to post someone’s printable without crediting them.
My desk area is all set up for blogging…it also has my journal there for when I want to write down my thoughts. My camera is also there for filming or takin photos. I also have my laptop there as well but that comes and goes with me.
Then I set up my actual prayer area which is in the opposite corner from my blogging space. I have a seat cushion there to rest against.
I have a bin where I have some a couple of different Bibles.
I have my Concordance for study. A journal for when I get an idea for a blog post while praying (which happens a LOT), markers, pencils and pens for if I feel I want to journal during that time. I have pictures up of people I want to pray for every day (blurred out for their privacy).
I also keep a couple of sheets of paper on the wall with prayers for my husband and children and also a sheet for logging answered prayers on. My prayer journal is also there so I can pray for friends and family and people who ask for prayer.
To learn about what prayers I use for my husband and children, or for more information on Watchman prayer..see the books I linked below
In addition, my Amazon Dot is in that corner for playing music while I am working or if I just want to listen to praise and worship music during my prayer time.
It is still a work in progress as I determine what my needs are while praying but I think this is an amazing start! I so appreciate this gift that was given with so much love! I am truly blessed!! Please comment if you have any questions about anything I use in my War Room or in my filming area!
