Why You Should Try Prayer Journaling + A Free Prayer Journal

I’m so excited to talk to you guys about prayer journals! I started journaling my prayers when I was in high school (back before it was a *cool* thing). It’s how I fell in love with Jesus and I’m SO excited to share this with you too. Eeeek!

really struggle with praying in my head because I get easily side tracked. My mind is a maze of rabbit trails! I wanted to find something that would help me focus, to keep me on track. For me, I noticed I was able to focus better when I was writing. Hence, I committed myself to daily pray journaling.


Journaling for me, was a way to connect all of my intellectual ability with God. Journaling my prayers was the key to my growth with Jesus.

I’ve kept most of my prayer journals and let me tell you, it is SO incredible to re-read them! Looking back at my high school journals, I can see prayers God answered. These are things I would have forgotten about but thankfully I have a written reminder of God’s goodness, protection, and provisions.

Don’t worry, prayer journaling can be fun. It’s not like trying to write a college paper. I like adding stickers, and coloring on the page! (If you’d like to see the stickers I love for this– here is an affiliate link )

Sometimes, I turn on worship music and write a few minutes and listen to Gods voice for a few minutes. The great thing about prayer journaling, is that you can do whatever works for you to connect with Jesus. Sometimes I start my journaling by reflecting on my devotions and sometimes, I just start writing conversationally. There is no right or wrong way. The purpose is to fully connect with the Lord.
