Prayer Journal Idea

At the Moms of Central Meeting at church Felicia (our fearless leader) and Sonya (another mom) both talked about prayer journaling. Seems these ladies had learned before about a journaling process that keeps you praying all week long. For some of you this might not be anything new. This way of journaling was new to me so I will share it here.

1. Buy a three ring choose the size.
2. By page dividers, label them Sunday- Saturday
3. Insert paper between the page dividers.
4. Each day focus on one person or group of people

Some examples might be:

National Leadership
Extended Family
Health Concerns

What makes this unique is, by not stressing out over praying about these issues everyday, you are able to be more specific in your daily prayers. You keep track of the specific requests in the notebook and also keep track of how God answers them.

You can get really creative by scrapbooking pages according to your categories. For example, I might have picture of Bruce and me together for the marriage section of my book. You can get as creative as you want to be.

I think this is a great idea. Maybe you can use it too!

This is such a cute idea and much better than trying to keep track of everything all at once. I love how you have broken it down by category and needs to lift up each day.

Thank you so much for sharing this today.
