After making a reading journal last month, I thought I’d try my hand at creating a prayer journal. Now there are tons of prayer journals out there and they are brilliant in all they have to offer, but I tend to get bogged down by all the lists and extra stuff required to fill out the pages, so I made my prayer journal simple.
Maybe too simple for some, but it’s perfect for me. It’s easy to fill out and doesn’t take me an hour to complete.
First I found a pretty background that complemented the reading journal.
Then I created the interior pages. Just one page, repeated for each day. Like I said … super simple.
What I like about this journal is that it helps guide my prayers without complicating them. There is space to write:
- Date and scripture notation
- What I’m grateful for at that moment
- People I am praying for
- Things that are on my heart that day (what is troubling me; what I’m excited about; what I’m scared about; what I need to do but don’t want to … and the list goes on)
- What I feel like God is saying to me (While I’d love to hear God’s audible voice, I am not one of those fortunate ones. I am, however, nudged by the whispering of His Spirit within me. Not every day, but some, and I want to be reminded to listen each and every day to what He is saying to me.)
There you have it – my simple prayer journal. If you think this might help you in your prayer life, you can find this journal HERE. It’s $6.95 on Amazon.
You do not need a fancy journal. You can just use a spiral notebook or a composition notebook to record your prayers. They are cheap and you can let your heart go as you write to God. However you pray, I hope you stay close to God and grow to love Him more each day.
