How to Set Up a Prayer Journal




If you are joining me here from Proverbs 31 Ministries’ Encouragement for Today, welcome! I am so glad you’ve come by!

A prayer journal is something I have used to help my prayer life be consistent. One season it might be a very pretty journal and others a 10¢ spiral from a back-to-school sale.

Fancy or plain, both will hold exactly what I need. A place to record the prayers I am praying for myself and those I dearly love.

So, here is my current journal. I took an outside shot so you could see how messy it is! See the papers sticking out of the back? Those are copies of the prayers for my daughters Lysa TerKeurst shared a few weeks ago as well as the prayers for my son from Brooke McGloughlin. The small note cards sticking out are from Stormie Omartian’s The Power of a Praying Wife. I found the prayers from the book in card form a bizillion years back. I’ve been praying these prayers for Greg most of our 27 years of marriage. Based on God’s word, I know they line up with His heart for my man!

Here’s a peak inside. These pages are filled with some of my prayers for the events I speak at (I thought this was a bit safer than choosing pages on my loved ones!)

I simply put in the date of my request then write it out. Once it is answered, I highlight it so I can see very clearly all God is doing. On those days when I feel discouraged, I can scan over all that hot pink and with assurance see God is at work!

You can also get journals set up just for praying. When I saw Proverbs 31 Ministries new journal (pictured above), I just wanted to fill it up; it’s so pretty! Each page has space to write and encouraging verses too!

Today I am giving away one of Proverbs 31 Ministries’ journals! To enter to win, simply comment in the space below (or if you are getting this by email head over to I’d love to hear how you pray and talk with God best or if you’re in a hurry, simply say, “I’m in!” I’ll announce the winner next Monday!
