There are a few questions I get routinely. One of them is about this journal. I’m not exactly sure how I found Val Marie Paper several years ago, but somehow, she popped up in my feed or in my search on Instagram. It was towards the end of the year, and I ordered one of her Prayer Journals for the upcoming year. I’ve ordered one every year since.
It was fun to hear from Val after I’d talked about these journals on the show. She told me how many of you had found her, and ordered.
A few takeaways for me regarding a prayer journal:
1. It’s nice to write out your prayers a few times a week. There’s something about spilling your heart out with pen and paper that makes it feel like you’re writing a letter to the Lord. I have found that these are some of my most precious and intimate moments.
2. There’s nothing more powerful than looking back over past prayer journals, and seeing ANSWERED PRAYERS. I have even taken pictures of where I’ve prayed for specific things, and sent the pic to the person that I was praying for. A few that come to mind are infertility and pregnancies, adoptions, and restored relationships. It brings tears to my eyes just to think about it right this minute!! Of course, there are many unanswered prayers, too, but that’s just a reminder that God is still working in the waiting.
3. If you’re new to prayer journaling, there’s sections for “Prompts” & “Conversation Starters.”
I made a quick video to show y’all the inside of the prayer journal. Take a look!
