Prayer Journal

I haven’t written a blog post in a long time, and it saddens me because I really enjoy writing out what has been going on in this little brain of mine.

The good news, however, is that I am starting a new blog series! It will be a prayer journal, with a new prompt each day, for the next 20 days. I’m so excited!!!

I found this prayer journal thing on Pintrest, which has been my source for finding a lot of new things to try lately. You can find so much on there! I’ve taken some recipe ideas, some christmas gift ideas, and of course..this blogging idea 🙂

So, just to give you a preview of what these prompts will include, I’ll list them down below and begin with the first one today in a separate blog post. This prayer journal was created by Rach Wojo, who also has other versions of prayer journals, and bible reading plans.

  1. Write a love letter to God
  2. Re-write you favourite scripture in prayer
  3. Write a thank-you note for something for which you feel especially blessed
  4. Tell God how much you love Him and praise Him for who he is
  5. Write out a list of thanks for everyday things and pray the list to God
  6. Copy a meaningful prayer that someone else has written into your prayer journal
  7. Write out a prayer of praise for all God has accomplished in your life
  8. Write a prayer on behalf of a loved one
  9. Surrender all your thoughts to the Lord by writing out a prayer of giving yourself to Him
  10. Pray a prayer of blessing over someone you love
  11. Pray for your enemies
  12. Take a prayer walk outside and for everything you see, give thanks
  13. Use a list of the names of God to write a prayer of thanks for who He is
  14. Follow the ch@t guide bookmark (not sure what this is?!)
  15. Write out a prayer for the “least of these”(Mathew 25:40) and ask God to show your part in ministering to the homeless, disabled, or the elderly
  16. Write out a prayer of confession
  17. List out your priorities or decisions you must make in the next week
  18. List needs and pray over them, asking God to meet those needs
  19. Use a journal entry to pray for your local leaders, community, church and business
  20. Copy the Lord’s prayer from Mathew 6:9-13. Then rewrite the prayer using your own words.

So there it is, a complete list of the 20 prompts I’ll be using for the upcoming days of blogging. I hope this encourages you, to make or complete a prayer journal for yourself. I’m praying that in the next 20 days, I will have a better understanding on how to pray, what to pray, and when to pray. There is no “wrong” time to pray, but often times I forget to, and regret not praying beforehand.

Thank you for reading and enjoy your weekend everyone!
