What’s A Prayer Journal?
Writing down your prayers is a great way to make your requests known to God, and keep track of which ones He answers. Prayer journals help you do this in an organized way.
Writing all of your prayers in one place allows you to keep track of everything the Lord is doing in your life.
Prayer journals can come with prompts to help guide your prayers or even grow you in their faith. They can vary from being focused on just prayer, include scripture, blessings, and even include a vision board.

This DIY scrapbook journal is a way for you to get your imagination flowing. Whether you’re an artsy person or can barely cut a straight line (like me) this idea is made for everyone.

For this journal, you want to really make it your own. The idea is to make it a monthly prayer journal, but switch it up however you want.
First: The blank journal you got is what you will use to write down your daily prayers. At the end of each month, you’re going to cut out your prayers to add to your composition notebook.
Duct tape is optional to put on the binding of your journal and around the cover of your journal to make it extra durable.
Decorate each page using your scrapbook paper and coloring utensils. I recommend having a theme for each month, with the name of the month somewhere on the page. this will make it really pop and look organized.
After glue your monthly prayers on the page. This will help you to see all that God did for you that month and be able to visibly see which prayers He answered.
