Prayer Journals: How I Use Mine.

Here’s what I write in my Journal:

The Date 

“Rejoice always.  Pray continually.  Give thanks in all circumstances for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”  1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

I am thanking God for… [here I write down in list form at least three things]

“Cast all your anxiety unto him because he cares for you.”  1 Peter 5:7

I am asking God for… [here I write down in a list form at least three things]

I use my prayer journal to thank God for what He has done and ask God to do something He hasn’t yet done.  This helps me keep frustration and worry at bay.  And I have found that the simple practice of writing prayers down has helped me tremendously.
