How to Start a Prayer Journal – Tips, Ideas and Examples


hey everyone for those of you that don’t
know me my name is Samantha I’m Jason’s wife and we are from DrawForGod.com
and I really wanted to talk to you guys today about having a prayer journal I
became interested in having a prayer journal after I was watching Joyce Meyer
I would watch her every morning and she always talked about her prayer journals
I kind of tossed it around but I just was like do I really want to do all that
writing and just I don’t it just wasn’t in that season of my life to start one
as of yet so years a few years later I just was on my heart very strong to
start writing down my prayers to write down the names of the people that I was
praying for and what I was praying for I thought was very important so you don’t
have to have a specific fancy book or anything I started off in just a plain
old notebook and I would write down my prayers for the people I was praying for
I would write down my scripture that God put on my heart for the day and I would
meditate on that for a while and I just loved having everything at my fingertips
from taking it from my head down to the book was a release for me and not only
that but I just kept I could read it over and over again and you know whether
I’m telling the Lord how much I love him and praising his name I would read it
sometimes like 10 20 times or whatever I was feeling for the day or when I’m
really praying for someone with like just fervently just really wanting to pray
for someone it’s right there right in front of me and I could just put all my
heart and soul into the prayer so that’s helped me tremendously having it written
out in front of me so my best friend for Christmas got me this cute little prayer
journal and I absolutely loved it it just has these little buttons that
you undo with the paper in here and it’s has
gold which is pretty so yeah I really like my prayer journal so another thing
I love about having a prayer journal is that I started prophesizing scripture
into our lives and what that means is for example I take a scripture and I
kind of rewrite it to where I’m speaking God’s Word into my life into our life
because I’m praying for my husband my family and everything so an example that
I wrote was proverbs 12 for I said a virtuous and worthy wife I am earnest
and strong in character and I am a crowning joy to Jason so it’s just stuff
like that if you want to prophesize good health prosperity godly wisdom just
whatever your heart is desiring and when you read God’s Word if it’s speaking to
you these are God’s promises prophecies it in your life and write it in your
book and read it over and over and over every day and believe in it and what
you’re writing and God will answer you he will hear you and he will answer you
I just feel like my life has been amazing since I started journaling and
to be able to go back you know especially when I’m having a bad day to
be able to go back three weeks before and say wow look at all these prayers
God has answered look at everything that he has blessed me with and that changes
you know I’m just like I am very blessed I don’t need to be having a bad day and
the most amazing thing is to go back and write fulfilled praise the Lord and then
I go on like writing a page and a half of telling God how awesome he is so it’s
just been fun it’s been heart felt it’s just been a really really awesome
journey having a prayer journal and I feel in Jason’s last video he did of
on having a prayer room so I feel like the prayer room and the prayer journal
go hand in hand we you know we as humans and God’s children we really need to
find a solitary place and to be alone and to just rest in God’s peace and to
rest in his love and in his presence and there is nothing like that I’m in this
world that could bring you there besides being by yourself one-on-one
with the father and to write down everything that he puts on your heart
and I know that when my time comes and the Lord takes me home I want my
children to have these prayer journals of mine so they could see how much their
mama prayed for them and I’m just in awe of the Lord it’s just very exciting it’s
a very exciting journey and I pray that I got you excited to start a prayer
journal and to go in your prayer room and to start writing to the Lord your
love letters and your your desires and most of all your praises so keep me
updated on how you’re doing if you have an amazing story to tell about your
prayer journal share it in the comments below I would love to hear them I just
want to thank you for watching and I hope you have a very blessed day

  1. You have so inspired me I am struggling in my prayer life and just started my prayer journal it seems that most are more concerned about fancying them up then about the writing……God Bless and thank you

  2. Thanks for sharing this. was just thinking about starting a prayer journal and yours is the first video i saw about it.

  3. Actually, I’m a writer & artist but have been praying since I was a little girl. The last couple of years I got knocked down for the umpteenth time with illness and just today I got a clue. I am in a group class on setting up a prayer journal. I got sick and I got timid and complacent. Even though I walk with Him daily and have for nearly 30 years…I don’t do enough specifically.

  4. Can you please make a video on how to thank God and pray in the morning and night
    Thank you
    God bless

  5. I love this video, I'm a lover of prayer. I started to journal my prayers almost 3 years ago and took it very serious after I watched warroom. My favourite thing is when I'm writing my prayers and the Lord places a specific word or sentence to Prayer. It makes me extra Happy because God just downloaded in my thoughts, His will…

  6. This is crazy…I recently started following Joyce Meyer and felt compelled to start studying the bible. Today I randomly stopped at this cool thrift store nearby and stumbled upon a bible that I bought for a whopping $1. It's the EXACT SAME ONE you have in this video…

  7. Hey was just wondering, is your prayer journal like a recap of what you have prayed or is more like you are writing your prayers to God like a letter to Him. Thanks 🙂

  8. Thank you so much for sharing! I am starting a prayer journal and am going to do a YouTube video about mine as well. A friend gave me a beautiful journal several years ago and I’ve only written in it once; it has been sitting in my bookcase for so long!! I got it out recently and am going to start using it this week. I hope I can inspire others just as you have done. May God bless you & your family.

  9. Thanks for this video. I'm a teenager and that means praying isn't the first thing in my mind at all, but I don't want to lose my faith because of my age.

  10. Thank you for making this video and sharing how you write in your journal. I am excited about prophesying the truth into my life and those I pray for! I am so excited about this journey! <3

  11. This was a very inspiring video. I was never really sure how to start my journal but now I think I'm ready.

    One question: should I also write or apologize for wanting to do something bad to someone else? Not that I want to, but it's a question that I've been wondering about.

  12. Thank you. Its been a rough couple weeks and I wanted to get a prayer journal started again. I've had heart tests and a heart condition dignosed, my first mammogram, a 3D test and an Ultrasound is coming in 2 days for a little lump I found. My dear God loving friend was taken in an accident the day after his 46th birthday, last week then I was hit in MY car the day after his memorial and my car was totaled. Not hurt, Thank God. Just sore. I need reminders that He hasn't left me. When things like this happen, I need all the reminding I can get. Bless you for sharing.

  13. Very inspiring. Thank you. I am going to start journaling again. I too pray scriptures over myself and my family. I pray the prayers that Paul the apostle prayed in the Epistles and It WORKS! Thanks again.

  14. Thanks for the tips. A journal is good to keep a track of your answered prayers and answers a person is waiting on from other prayers

  15. Prayer with good results usually are offered within this impressive prayer manual “Kenοtοw Prayer” (Google it). The very first time I used it, it is effective for me personally. It is shown here how to have your own prayers responded and also just how to find the much better answer we wanted to get. Apart from it is clearly created, there are steps to go by also. It’s can lead to a life enhancing way bringing about a hope and good results. .

  16. So how does this work I have a prayer journal I’m 16 (M) do you just write prayers in it or write to god cuz when I write prayers it doesn’t feel as special when I say it
