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.
- Write a love letter to God
- Re-write you favourite scripture in prayer
- Write a thank-you note for something for which you feel especially blessed
- Tell God how much you love Him and praise Him for who he is
- Write out a list of thanks for everyday things and pray the list to God
- Copy a meaningful prayer that someone else has written into your prayer journal
- Write out a prayer of praise for all God has accomplished in your life
- Write a prayer on behalf of a loved one
- Surrender all your thoughts to the Lord by writing out a prayer of giving yourself to Him
- Pray a prayer of blessing over someone you love
- Pray for your enemies
- Take a prayer walk outside and for everything you see, give thanks
- Use a list of the names of God to write a prayer of thanks for who He is
- Follow the ch@t guide bookmark (not sure what this is?!)
- 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
- Write out a prayer of confession
- List out your priorities or decisions you must make in the next week
- List needs and pray over them, asking God to meet those needs
- Use a journal entry to pray for your local leaders, community, church and business
- 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!
