Praying for Others
Are you ready to create a Praying for Others page in our Simple Prayer Journal?
But first, how is it going? Have you already created several pages for your Journal? I hope so.
So far, we’ve talked about these pages:
- Index Page (well, we created a page and have left it blank for now)
- Praise (free printable available for this one)
- Waiting on God
- Praying for Family (free printable available for this one)
That’s a nice start. Don’t worry if you haven’t created all of them yet. As you use our Simple Prayer Journal you can add the pages as you need them. And remember, you don’t have to create them all before you begin.
Don’t Delay, Start your Prayer time Today
In fact, please let me encourage you right now. If you are waiting until you finish your Simple Prayer Journal to start setting aside time to pray, please don’t. Start your prayer time today.
Pray what is on your heart. God wants to hear from you. Pray what you want to pray about. Remember this Simple Prayer Journal is just intended to be a help and a place to write down what you are praying about. Plus it is a place to record how the Lord answers your prayers.
If you are a bit overwhelmed with all of these pages for the Simple Prayer Journal, please check out the Pray 24/7 post. I think you’ll find it an encouragement. It will give you a simple place to start. And oftentimes, starting is the hardest part.
Praying for Others Page
Let’s talk about a Praying for Others page. You could consider this an Intercessory Prayer page because that is what we are doing when we pray for others, we are asking God to intercede in others’ lives. God invites us to pray for others.
I Timothy 2:1
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
And think of how much more power there is in our prayers when we are joining others with the same prayer.
Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
Create Your Praying for Others page
As I always say, you can create a Praying for Others page in whatever way you wish. It’s your Simple Prayer Journal. You can write the heading on a sheet of paper or prepare something on your computer. You can keep it simple with words only or add a little design. It’s up to you.
Here are a few ideas:
- Write “Praying for Others” in a bold marker color at the top of the page
- Type “Praying for Others” at the top of the page and add a praying hands clip art from your computer
- Create a simple list and use 2 or 3 lines for each person you pray for
- Add the date and what the need is
- Be sure to leave a space to write God’s answer to the prayer
It might look something like this:
And just continue this type of list down your page. Add more lines and pages as they are needed.
I’d love for you to comment below and let me know how your Simple Prayer Journal is coming. I have a lot of additional page ideas that I’ll be sharing.
Is there a particular page for your Simple Prayer Journal that you are waiting for? Please let me know. I’d love to hear from you.
