Printable Prayer Journal And How To Organize Your Prayer Binder.

Updated: Nov 9, 2022

Have you ever wanted to start a prayer journal but didn't know where to start?

Maybe you passionately desire to grow close to God and become the woman of God that you know God is calling you to be but your day is super crazy busy and you don't know how to find the time to be intentional about your prayer life.

I have been there too and I have finally found 2 simple ways to have an intentional prayer time, interceeding for friends, family, and myself while confidently expecting God to answer my prayers. And it comes in a printable prayer journal pdf format!

What is a prayer journal?

A prayer journal is a wonderful way to keep a record of all your prayers. When you use a guided prayer journal with prompts that lead you through a time of praise, confession, thanksgiving, and supplication - it becomes a form of worship.

You can use a cheap notebook to write out your prayers or you can download and print some of the printable prayer templates that are widely available on the internet. There are also physical copies of dedicated beautiful prayer journals that you can purchase.

I just couldn't make the physical copies of prayer journals work for me. I would want to move pages around in the journal - which you can't or there wasn't enough room to write out all that I wanted to in a specific place. So I became inconsistent with my prayer time and a little bit frustrated with myself in the process.

What suits my chaotic brain is a binder that I can add to or take away any pages that I need for recording my prayers. I also need a framework, an ordered way to record prayers not just for myself but for friends, work, church, the world, and other ideas.

My desire is to be an intercessor and to be more intentional about praising God, thanking Him for all that He has done, and being better at taking time to confess known and unknown sins. I know that as I use this prayer binder with the various printables that my prayer time will become more balanced and I will take time to listen for the Lord to speak to me.

A guided prayer journal is exactly what I need to keep me focused and intentional about praying for everyone and all the things that God puts on my heart.

It is also fabulous to look back in time and see how God has answered those prayers!
