If you’ve been around here for long, then you know that I love my prayer notebook.

When I shared that my prayer life was a mess, making a prayer notebook was one of the first ideas I came across to help me get organized. But talking with some of you, I’ve learned that a prayer notebook isn’t really for everyone.

Making a prayer notebook is not the only way to organize your prayer life.

There are many methods you can use to organize your prayer life, and in today’s post I’m going to be sharing with you some of those ways.

As a matter of fact, I don’t just use a prayer notebook. I employ a variety of methods for organizing my prayer life, and researching for this post, I uncovered even more ways I can be more intentional with my prayer life.

In addition to my prayer notebook, I use a prayer journal too.

A prayer journal can be as simple as a blank notebook (these are my favorite) that you fill with your prayers and praises.

It doesn’t have to be complicated, but a prayer journal can also be a templated journal you can print off or buy.

Here are some resources for prayer journals:

3. Record Your Prayers in Your Daily Planner

I had a reader share with me that she uses her Homemaker’s Friend Daily Planner to record her daily prayers. She uses the Menu Plan section to write out a short prayer or record something she was grateful for each day.

I’m sure this idea could work with any daily planner!

A few other ideas for using a planner to organize your prayer life:

  • You could use your monthly-calendar-at-a-glance as your gratitude journal. Just record one praise a day!
  • Or you can write the names of people you want to pray for, or events you want to devote special prayer time to on the monthly-calendar-at-a-glance.
  • If there is a section of the planner you don’t use, then turn that into a place to capture prayer requests others share with you.
  • Keep a list of things you want to pray over regularly on the inside front cover. Then, you can pray anytime you find a spare moment, or when you refer to your planner during the day.

4. Use Prayer Cards

Paul Miller talks about prayer cards in his book, A Praying Life. I read this book years ago, and to be honest, I need to pick it back up.

Rosilind Jukic also has a good post on prayer cards (and she has a free printable).

5. Use a Prayer App

Prayermate is a simple app that mimics the use of prayer cards. This is one I’m going to try out!

6. Make a Travelers Notebook Prayer Journal

This is what my friend, Jami over at Young Wife’s Guide uses. This is totally intriguing to me.

7. Use a Prayer Board

If you’re more of the visual type, then a prayer board might be a great way for you to organize your prayer life!

8. Designate a Sacred SPACE

If you’ve seen the movie, War Room, then you know it promotes the idea of a prayer closet.

Your sacred space could be:

  • Special room
  • Closet
  • Chair
  • Walking area
  • Rock
  • Bench
  • Car ride
  • Somewhere else you always pray

9. Use a Prayer Guide

If you have a hard time knowing what to pray for, a simple search online for prayer guides should turn up some helpful results.
