Prayer Journal

Guide to Prayer, Reflection, Gratitude and Praise

Prayer Journal

This book wants to make you happy. Get ready to smile!Does your prayer life need a makeover? Come on, take my hand and let me help!

If you are anything like me, I find the demands of life distract me from creating a consistent, satisfying, and fruitful prayer life. It’s super easy to get caught up in work, children, chores, bills, friendships, the list goes on and on… At the end of the day, I am embarrassed and disappointment with myself for not taking the time to put Christ first. Surely I could have made time for the God of all the universe! The guilt, condemnation and shame creep in and I’m left feeling even further disconnected.

If, by chance, I do finally make the time for prayer, I often feel lost, aimless and overwhelmed with how to enter into His presence. I feel inadequate when I don’t follow through every day and panic when weekly gaps appear in my journaling. Despite my inconsistencies, I recognize the value of spending time alone with God. But how? And why do I seem to be more interested in browsing the Internet or watching Netflix than spending intimate time with Him? Can you relate?

This cycle of guilt, condemnation, aimlessness and uncertainty is what inspired me to create this 3 month easy-to-use prayer journal. I figured other women were having a hard time too; and if I was honest and vulnerable enough, I could help ease the pressure and show them a different way. Let me take you by the hand and help lead you closer to His heart.

My prayer journal was prayerfully and intentionally designed to guide you through a process and into a vibrant connection with Jesus. Each day provides enough structure to get you started and enough space to give you the freedom to express what’s on your mind. The daily prayer suggestions, questions and prompts are purposefully intended to usher you into God’s presence and stimulate your joy and happiness.

Going beyond prayer, I have deliberately added specific questions to arouse gratitude and inspire service. In order to ensure the Word of God is written upon your heart, hand drawn weekly coloring pages encourage creativity and facilitate meditation. Furthermore, you will be challenged weekly to take action steps in serving and loving a hurting world. As we draw closer to Jesus, we will naturally want to overflow into the lives of others.

This journal is an expression of me – from my heart to yours. I’ve added several personal touches from sharing my testimony to drawing the graphics by hand. I have chosen to be bravely vulnerable so that you too can share in the journey of setting your mind on things above.

There is nothing like being in the presence of God! Let my journal light a lamp for your feet and show you the way. Your life will be dramatically transformed as you are filled with His peace, joy and grace!
