5 More DIY Ideas to Take Your Prayer Journal to the Next Level!

    So many of you ladies were inspired and encouraged by our previous post on fun and creative ways to get your prayer journal started that we thought we’d share more cool finds you’re sure to love. Enjoy!


    1. Write letters to God. This idea from Kathryn Shirey is such a great way to practice accountability in communication with God by writing out your requests and recording any answered prayers! You’ll be surprised by how encouraging it is to keep track of these things in a journal.

    2. Make your own prayer binder. Here’s another excellent way to organize specific prayer requests for yourself, others and your personal ministry. Definitely look into it!


    Find more details at Orthodox Mom.


    3. Create one-tab-a-day prayers with specific themes. This is a powerful way to dedicate each day to focus on a specific theme for prayer, like your family, your friends, your country, etc.!

    4. Make a printable prayer journal. It’s not exactly DIY, but it can make a great addition to your prayer binder if you’re seeking some solid organization that will edify you!


    Find these printables at Marie Osborne.


    5. Don’t forget your affirmations! How uplifting is this?! Add declaratives and scriptural promises to your journal that reaffirm the power of God’s Word at work in your prayers.

    1. I started a prayer journal after the last PI post about it. I truly enjoy it. As a writer, it’s really helped me get closer to God and I highly recommend this for anyone and writers in particular. I sort of did a spin on the tabbed areas for specific things. I put tabs on the first page of my journal with Praise, Myself, Family, Friends, and Misc. then each entry I make follows that format followed by a “thoughts” page which is sometimes my rambles and my prayers to God. Writing them down really helps! If you’re shy or new to the faith or feel yourself drifting off in though when praying to God, try this. It really helps!


    2. I just got a new prayer journal last week, and I love using it!
      I want to try #3 and #5. I like the idea of the one-tab-a-day prayers and writing affirmations from God’s Word sounds like a great idea too. I already write prayers to God… and I have found that to be extremely helpful for me. I carved out a space in one of my closets to use as a “war room” and I love it… I just need to get into a regular prayer routine. I struggle with prayer more than Bible reading. PRAY is my one word for 2016 and I am excited about the things God has been teaching me already. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year holds and what lessons I will learn about prayer.

    3. So I don’t have a prayer Journal… I have a prayer WALL. Haha If you have seen the movie War Room, then you would recall the scene where she is throwing all her clothes out of her closet and starts hanging up prayers. (if you haven’t seen this movie- you really need to!) This inspired me to start my OWN prayer wall :))) I sleep on the bottom bunk of a bunkbed and it’s right by a wall. I have maybe 20-30 prayers hung up for people I love, giving thanks, and also for people my friends asked me to pray for. Honestly, sometimes I just look at all the prayers on my wall and think ‘God is good that he would give me all these people to pray about’. It just makes me SOOO HAPPPYYYY haha!!! I love it.
