Breaking down passages into smaller chunks ahead of time or creating a topical Bible reading plan helps me to stay motivated and engaged in my Bible time. I quickly learned that writing out a recurring prayer for the daily and weekly prayers that I want to pray has really helped me to pray more scripture-based prayers and with more intention overall. This prayer journal has really been an incredible process of learning for me. I could not be more pleased!

I look forward to seeing how the Lord uses it in my life to grow me in the discipline of prayer. What a gift of grace! Leigh Ann Dutton is the wife to the man of her prayers, Mark, and mama to three loveable little cherubs.
She takes joy in spending her days creating memorable moments with her family, studying God's Word, reading good books, and enjoying God's creation. She does it all by the grace of God. I started laughing when I saw the title of the email. I did the same thing this week, only a tad different I used tabs on the top of the pages for better indexing and a lovely composition book and I kept my Bible studies in my prayer notebook.
My prayer journal will stay next to my bed for my nightly prayer time easier for me with a hubs who works nights , and the notebook is down at my desk for mornings. I have a space in my BuJo for any requests that come up that I can transfer to my actual prayer journal at the end of the day. I love that you keep a spot in your Bullet Journal for prayer requests. You are dedicated to your prayer life!! I really like how organized you are in your prayers. I was tired of not praying. Thanks for sharing your brain work!! I have a Erin Condren Life Planner for my appointments, chores, and routines.
I list my weekly chores by category and love it so that I am not writing tasks on a specific day, and then having to carry them forward each day.

But I love the idea of a Bullet Journal and have tried them in the past — I just never was able to stick with it. I have added my prayer journal, bible reading ideas, sermon notes, great quotes, gardening ideas, blog post ideas, birthday party ideas, bible verses that encourage me, books to read and all the miscellaneous scraps of paper with important information all in one bullet journal!! I have dabbled with doodling around the edges, and I have used many of your ideas for pages. Thanks so much for the inspiration!! This is what I have found is the perfect mix of the two!!
I am going to make a BuJo prayer journal too!! I am so thankful for you in my life! The Lord uses you Leanne! I am so excited to get started! I have read Jen Wilkens book and I wanted a way to help me remember and to follow through. Along with remembering what and who to pray for! I am a new mom I have a 2 month old and this will make my brain stay focused when I am in zombie mode!! Thank you for being faithful to your readers!
It truely is minstry to me!! This was a great post! So I have different inserts for each category. I have inserts for scripture writing, Bible studies I currently follow the Good Morning Girls studies , a prayer journal, and a gratitude journal. I also bullet journal so I love the way you have set up the trackers to help with your prayers!
I may try to incorporate this! Thanks for sharing! I had read your prayer notebook post and had found it a little overwhelming — I was procrastinating over it while working through the Living for Him and Planning information when you posted this. Thanks so much, Leigh Ann!!! Keep up the good work! I have set up my new prayer journal! I gave you credit where it was due! Allycia recently posted… My New Prayer Journal.

You are an inspiration! Thank you for sharing your very organize journal! I enjoyed watching your video, and im inspired to do the same. Godbless you and your family! Such a great idea! I will probably be using some of your ideas! I have been wanting some MORE for my quiet times and just noticed this past weekend my friend with her little journal always taking notes.
I have been journaling for sometime in the mornings with God but am finding repeating my daily prayers inefficient — I love that you have specific written prayers for family. I am working on praying out loud more and less journaling every single thing. Anyways, I just happened upon this post and I am so excited- I have my little cheap-o journal myself now and it happens to be in purple, my fav!
Thank you for taking the time to lay all of this out. Have a wonderful week Leigh Ann! I love that you have done this! I bought a new journal last month especially to BuJo my prayer journal and I have been researching ways of combining the two! Thanks so much for your inspiration! I adore your structure!
They also do make some binder style journals you can find them on amazon. Great ideas here.
How I Set Up My New Prayer Journal
Loved this post! My prayer strategy changes all the time. Its important to stay on track and pray for others.
This is such a great post! I just started a bullet journal a few months ago and was searching for ideas on how to incorporate some pages to keep track of my prayers. But now I totally want to start a separate prayer journal! I just discovered you and I am so excited to learn all of these ideas…prayer journals, prayer notebook which i am working on starting the notebook.
Thank you so much Leigh Ann, worst part is I do not have small children or things to keep me apart from Him…just me. That is all about to change. Thank you again Blessings to you and your family.
I just want to say thank you. God bless you for this! I just looked through your posts on both the prayer notebook and journal. I have always loved the flexibility of binders, but the manageability of journals. Therefore several years ago I switched to the much smaller binders approx. I found mine in Staples and Office Max, but are readily available on Amazon as well. Thanks for all your hard work and sharing of ideas. Elaine Jansen. Thanks Leigh Ann — I am inspired to move to a prayer journal.
I did start a prayer notebook based upon your notebook, but am now looking forward to starting more of a journal style. Bible Study, Prayer Journaling, Reading…I do have a full time job outside the home, 4 children 24 at home, 21 away a college, 17 at home, 9 at home. I have about 40 minutes each morning before everyone else gets up for my quiet time.
It just flies by! Suggestions on how to get it all done would be welcome!
