The Best Prayer Journal For Women in 2023

Church on Sunday is helpful, or a group Bible study can be great in navigating the week to week, but getting alone with the Lord and spending time with Him is our anchor for the day to day. Nothing can replace that time of individual worship. When we spend time with God, we can meditate on an inspiring Bible verse, or bring prayer requests to Him. If you prioritize Him and His Word, the storms of life don’t stand a chance!

Why Do I Need A Prayer Journal?

Prayer journals are one of the best ways to keep track of your own prayers, day to day experiences, or those incredible testimonies that leave you totally convinced God answers prayer! Prayer journals are for women who want to strengthen their faith and cultivate a lifestyle of prayer.

‍What Is A Prayer Journal For Women?

There are many resources out there. You may have seen a guided prayer journal for women, or a 52 week scripture devotional, organized thematically, where each week includes journaling prompts.

How A Prayer Journal Will Impact Your Life

  • They can also be a great remember to pray for others. Write your friend’s needs down and bring it before the Lord. Document the testimonies of answered prayers along the way.
  • Meditating on scripture verses with a journal will take your Bible reading to the next level! What verses or passages can you pray over your life or over a loved one’s life? What promises did you discover that you’ve never seen before? What brought encouragement or challenged you to ask for greater understanding? Write it out.

Make Your Own:

One approach is you can write out what you are praying for, what you’re thankful for, or maybe Bible verses you are meditating on! Be sure to date it so you can go back and see time stamps of God moving in your life.

Another approach is logging a thankfulness journal where you can express gratitude for all God has done and is doing in your life! This is another powerful way to use journaling to connect with the Lord. Expressing thankfulness is such a powerful weapon when going through a hard time and another great way to connect with the Lord.

Or maybe you want to meditate on one particular inspiring Bible verse. You can write out the scripture and pray it over things in your personal life, and your friends and family.

Don’t forget to document praise reports! Document when God has answered your prayers. That’s what this is all about! Additionally, praise reports are a great way to incorporate individual worship into your prayer time by praising Him for all He has done.
