In our fast paced world, it can be difficult to sit down and have a quiet time with your Heavenly Father. I have found one of the best ways to carve out this time is to include writing my thoughts and prayers to Him as part of my Morning Routine and I would like to share this free prayer journal printable I created with my readers.
A prayer journal is a record of your conversations with God. It’s not just a list of your request but it will also include what God is teaching you, revealing to you, and your own praise and confession to Him.
When you write down your prayers and then look back at how God answered or did not answer your prayers you will be building a record of God’s faithfulness in your life over time. It will help you grow a closer walk with the Lord when see how you change in response to your circumstances and in response to what God is doing in your life.
For my Filofax prayer journal section I have created five areas of importance that I want to concentrate on when I am writing in my prayer journal.
- Inspirational Scripture
- Prayers For Others
- Talks With God
- Lord Help Me
- Thankful For
Inspirational Scripture section is for writing down a verse that stood out in my quiet time. If I write it down I find that I meditate on it more through out my day.
Prayers For Others is where I write down needs of others such as healing, salvation, protection, a closer walk with God and so on.
Talks With God is where I write down in conversational form what ever God brings to my mind to pray about. This could be about events going on in my life, things I’m learning in bible study, or questions I have for God. It’s my time to sit down with my Heavenly Father and have a talk.
Lord Help Me is my confessional time. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9. After confession comes prayer for help not to walk in that sin again.
Thankful For is a time of praise. God gives us so many blessings and reveals so much of Himself to us through this world that it is only fitting to have a section to write down all that I am thankful for each day.
