The Ultimate List of Prompts and Ideas for Your Prayer Journal

I do my best to talk to God every single day. I encourage you to pray every day and watch all of the blessings unfold around you. If daily prayer is new to you, it might be hard to come up with topics to pray about. This list of prayer ideas can be used as a guide to help deepen your relationship with God. You can use these prayer prompts to pray out loud or use them with your prayer journal. 

What is a prayer journal? 

A prayer journal is a notebook where you write down your prayers. I use a prayer journal to keep track of my prayers and when God answers them. It helps me to connect with God on a deeper and more intentional level. You can use any notebook, journal, planner, or a sheet of paper to get started.
