60 Awe-Inspiring Prayer Journal Ideas and Prompts

Some prayer journals have ideas and prompts, others are for you to take creative direction, or maybe you have made your own. But, some days we can be lacking ideas and inspiration. You may be asking yourself, what should I write in my prayer journal? Here are some ideas and prompts to get you started. If you want to look into some amazing prayer journals check out Amazon’s Top Prayer Journals

Prayer Journal Inspiration

Some of the prayers below are linked back to our daily prayers that come out every Sunday. Feel free to draw inspiration from those if you get stuck on how to word or write your prayer in your prayer journal. Remember, it doesn’t have to be like others you’ve seen. Make it your own! Whether that’s long, short, detailed, or however you want it. These are your prayers between you and God to strengthen and grow your relationship with Him

Pray: Pray-Repent-Ask-Yield

Spending time in prayer is so important and having a prayer journal helps you to stay dedicated and motivated. Use these and get creative! You can also use the acronym for pray, which is Pray, Repent, Ask, and Yield as a guideline. You could write your prayer, repent for your sins, ask for what you need in His name, and yield to Him and His word.
