Prayer is our first response, not our last resort.

Prayer works.

If you ever get to a place in your life where you feel like something is missing, it’s probably a connection problem: you are disconnected from God and too connected to the world. Prayer can have a powerful impact on setting your life back on track. Prayer, simply, connects us to God.

I’m convinced most people don’t enjoy prayer because they have never been taught how to pray. That’s where this Prayer Journal can help.

When you discover the beauty of daily conversation with Him, you’ll experience the presence of God that will change your life. Over the next 7 days, we are going to do just that.

Once you learn how to pray, prayer can become a part of everyday life.

Before the day begins —
Before you go to bed —
Before you go to work or school —

Before you send that text —
Before you react —
Before bad things happen —

Before you eat, drive, or travel —

In every situation — PRAY FIRST!

To make your prayer time over the next 7 days even more meaningful: write out your prayers, keep a list of things you’re praying for currently and even play worship music as you set aside intentional time to pray. The most important step is committing to regularly entering God’s presence through prayer.

I can’t wait to hear how prayer impacts your life!

It’s our hope that your prayer life becomes more naturaleffective, and enjoyable.

If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14


7 days of prayer



“Our Father in Heaven, hallowed be Your name.
Your Kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver
us from the evil one. For Yours is the Kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.”


God loves when we worship Him, and there is power in His name. Proclaim who He is and pray His agenda first.  Then ask God for what you need today. Bring them to God, and trust Him enough to hand them over to Him fully. Ask God to check your heart and life and show you areas where you might need to ask for forgiveness or forgive others. Take your stand in victory and then end by praising Him and declaring your faith in Him.



I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. “ Romans 12:1

In the Old Testament, the Tabernacle was the dwelling place of God, built to His specifications, where He would meet His people. As they entered the Tabernacle, they passed through seven stations, following God’s instructions, to experience His presence. Today, even though we no longer need the physical Tabernacle to meet with God, these same steps can help us connect with Him.


Begin by writing about blessings in your life for which you’re thankful for. Thank God for the power and healing that the cross and resurrection of Jesus gives you. Confess our sins to Him and receive complete forgiveness and a fresh start. Thank God for the Holy Spirit that lives inside of you. Read Romans 12 then praise and worship God. End by interceding on behalf of those around you.



“Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and
know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” PSALM 139:23-24


Praying Scripture is one of the most powerful things you can do because you are proclaiming the Truth that is living and active. Pray and ask God to search your heart. Ask Him to find anything in you that is offensive, and to help you remove it from your life. Repent and forgive. Pray that He would teach you to love others and live a life that points people to Him.



“Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that You would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let Your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request.” 1 CHRONICLES 4:10


Begin by asking God boldly, with the right heart, for His blessing. Not simply His physical blessing but emotional and mental as well. You do not have, because you do not ask. Pray for more influence. In humility, acknowledge your need for God’s presence. Finally ask and trust the Lord to protect you.




“The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”

Every time the enemy tried to tempt Him, Jesus responded with a reference from the Bible. Acknowledge that you’re in a spiritual battle. Whether lies, fear or anxiety- you can command anything that comes against the truth of God and His Word to bow to the name of Jesus. Take a bold stand, praying specifically and confidently through God’s power and His Spirit.



“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me” Psalm 23:1-4


Pray in sequence by thanking God in advance for who He is and how He will show up in your life: He’s my shepherd (vs 1), He’s my provider (vs 1), He’s my peace (vs 2), He’s my healer (vs 3), He’s my righteousness (vs 3), He’s my friend (vs 4).



“You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” Psalm 23:5-6


Pray in sequence by thanking God in advance for who He is and how He will show up in your life: He’s my defender (vs 5), He’s my sanctifier (v 5), He’s my banner of goodness (vs 6), He’s my safe dwelling place forevermore (vs 6)
