How Journal Prompts Can Enhance Your Prayer Life

Confession. I wasn’t someone who journaling came naturally to. Oh, no. Not at all.

For a long time I wondered about the benefits of prayer journaling and how it could possibly enhance my spiritual growth.

Yet once I learned how to start a prayer journal the easy way and let go of my perfectionism for good, journaling became a staple in my daily quiet time with God.

However, there were days the words wouldn’t come and I felt stagnant in my writing. Over time, I started to see just how my journaling time was impacting my spiritual growth.

I discovered these powerful benefits of using Christian journal prompts, including the ways it:

  • Sparks praise of God and prompts a heart of worship
  • Brings sin to mind and helps you rely on God’s grace as you turn away from your missteps
  • Reminds you of God’s faithfulness and how He journeys with you through life
  • Helps you recall the prayer requests of others and pray war room prayers on their behalf
  • Renews your mind with God’s promises and keeps your heart focused on the Lord
  • Worships God through creative expression
  • Helps you write heartfelt prayers to the Lord
  • Cultivates an attitude of gratitude and to help you live amazed by God’s grace

How to Use Prayer Prompts in Your Daily Journaling 

As you start using prayer prompts, you’ll discover creative ways to use them. These are just a few ways I love to use them in my own daily journaling habit.

  • Use prompts to work through the ACTS prayer model (one of my favorite prayer journal sections)
  • Turn the prompt into a meaningful prayer to God
  • Use it to take inventory on your life and pray through different areas in which God is growing you or an area where you need to prune
  • To process a decision and pray through where God is leading you
  • As a record of God’s faithfulness to revisit in seasons of hardship
  • Write the Bible and turn Scripture into prayers
  • To reflect on Scripture and help you understand the Bible as you process what you read
  • As a place to surrender your burdens and lay your troubles at the foot of the cross
  • As a way to be completely honest with God (and yourself!) about your life
