At various times in my life I tried to use a prayer journal. I would either write out my prayers like letters to God or I would make bullet lists of people/ situations for which to pray. Neither of these methods worked for very long.
I realized back in September that I needed a prayer journal that I could be creative with. One that wouldn’t look the same on every page. One that I could record what I was learning about prayer, as well as prayers for people.
Then, in one of my education classes at my university, we learned about “Interactive Notebooks,” and I LOVED that idea so I decided to make an “Interactive Prayer Journal,” of sorts.
The supplies I used for my interactive prayer journal:
- Washi tape
- Scrapbook paper
- Scrapbooking stickers
- Sticky notes
- Colorful pens
Here’s what it turned out like…
Ideas For Prayer Journaling // How I Use My Prayer Journal
Posted by Joy Because Grace on Tuesday, January 10, 2017
I love using my interactive prayer journal! Sometimes I go through it from beginning to end, or sometimes I just flip to a random page and pray about whatever is on that.
I also like how it’s a combination of prayer topics, praises, and verses and quotes about prayer. I’ve found the randomness helps keep my mind from wandering as I pray.
Anywho! That’s how I’m prayer journaling right now. I hope this post and accompanying video gave you ideas for if you’d like to make your own interactive prayer journal! :)
