Prayer Journaling

Post by Bren on 10th October 2013, 5:27 pm

Do any of you do prayer journals? I am contemplating starting one and if you guys have any suggestions for how to go about it I'd love to hear them. I usually can express myself in writing really well. I admit I haven't been as faithful in my prayer life and want to get back to it.

Prayer journaling is a great habit, and it is one that I would like to make as my own daily habit.
One thing that I've realized about journaling, is that each and every page needs to reflect Christ, not me.  After all, "it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me" (Galatians 2:20).  Even when focusing on spiritual matters, I have a tendency to focus on my needs, desires, difficulties, weakness, and faults, rather than on Who God is, and His goodness, faithfulness, love, and sovereignty being displayed in my life.  I must make sure that I am always reflecting Christ, and not my troubles.  You may not even have a problem with that, but it's a danger that you should always be aware of.  =)

Hmm, I've never thought of it quite that way before. Even in our mistakes God gives us mercy and grace when we don't deserve it. It is easy to dwell on how we've messed up and forget how good God really is.

I can honestly say.. My prayer life hasn't been the best either.. Sad to say actually. I do have a prayer journal! I write in it a lot, It just helps to write things out, Since I am not really a open person, Helps me a lot. ^_^ My dad says Prayer is a way to keep your relationship with God. Tis true ^^
