How To Make The Best Use Of A Prayer Journal

Throughout the years I have always liked to keep and write reflections in notebooks. I never had a diary, but I have been writing about special moments and not so good throughout my life. Several years ago I decided to buy a few notebooks to write down my prayers, among other things. Understanding that it is necessary to keep a record of those constant prayers in which we wait patiently for a response from God.  Today, I want to share with you how we can (according to my experience) make the best use of a prayer journal.  

How to make the best use of a prayer journal

First, one of the best uses we can give a prayer journal is to keep a record of our prayers. When we set our hearts to pray sometimes for multiple requests, we can forget what we have prayed for. Writing our prayers is the first thing we should do.

Second, maintaining a record of answered prayers is one of the uses for our prayer journal. Many times we are in public places, in the church or any other place and because there are no limits to God, He can speak to us and answer our prayers at any moment. We must write it down.

If you are a prayer person, you have already experienced the request of prayers from others around you. In my prayer journal, I have a section where I write down those prayer requests that people make me daily.  So I do not forget any of them as I’m compromising myself to pray for them.

Also, we can take in our prayer journal those victories that God has given us through prayer. We can include a section of worship, praise and give thanks to God for all of them.

All of these methods or practices have helped me to make good and best use of my prayer journal. I’m still learning in the process. This is not about perfection but about a relationship with God.

  6. Honestly, you’ve just encouraged me to do something I’ve been meaning to do for a while. Really need a journal! I also get scriptures from my Pastor every now and then and it’s good to have a journal that I can easily refer back to instead of checking his texts/messages. Thanks for this.
