Activity: After this lesson, If you need more time in prayer about this topic, consider journaling a prayer to God telling him what hurts and poor patterns continue to surface. Ask Him for help and let Him know you are ready and open to learning. Pray using the open hands concept: Allow God to take what He needs to accomplish these changes. And, allow God to give you what you need to change habits. Consider sealing this envelope. Either pass it on to your mentor to hold, or set it in a safe place until you finish Cultivate.
