It doesn’t matter how much we want to pray more, making it actually happen is hard because it’s noisy out there. Even behind closed doors of our prayer closet, our mind can still keep us distracted. Maybe these are your goals for your prayer life too:
PRAY MORE / ELIMINATE DISTRACTIONS / FIND FOCUS
AND ULTIMATELY EXPERIENCE A DEEPER CONNECTION WITH GOD
In 2013, after getting pregnant and finding, even more, reasons to worry, I searched for something that could organize my thoughts and help me turn those worries into prayers. When I couldn’t find what I was looking for, I designed it. It took that mush of a pregnancy brain from staring at blank walls during prayer time to mountain-moving sessions with God and a pregnancy and transition to motherhood that I could never have dreamed was possible.
How different would life be if:
- Prayer time didn’t feel like a chore?
- You felt equipped instead of aimless when you sat down each morning to pray?
- Conversations with God happened naturally even while cooking dinner or sitting in traffic?
- You experienced peace and joy that God promises us when we live life in His presence?
- Answered prayers started radically changing your life?
THIS ISN’T SOME PIE-IN-THE-SKY DREAM. IT’S ALL POSSIBLE.
I KNOW BECAUSE I’VE EXPERIENCED IT AND I AM GIDDY EXCITED TO HELP YOU EXPERIENCE IT TOO.
Here are the top 8 benefits of using our prayer journals (according to our customers!):
- More focused prayer time
- A bigger passion for prayer
- Less anxiety and more faith
- Being able to look back and see how God has answered prayers
- Feeling dialed into prayer and not distracted and just checking off a box
- Deeper friendships because they are intentionally praying for each other each month
- Actually praying for the things you tell people you will pray for
- It’s structured enough to keep focused, but flexible enough to make your own
It’s silly but when I originally designed the first journal, I hoped to sell 50. I had no idea anyone else struggled the way I did or felt so defeated in something that is so vital to life. But after almost 7 years and nearly 100,000 prayer journals sold and an overflowing folder of thank yous from customers, I am convinced: I’m not the only one who is willing to fight for and invest in a thriving prayer life.
I know all the questions going through your head as you figure out whether you should purchase a journal because I’ve been there too. My heart isn’t to simply get prayer journals in your shopping cart, I want them to radically change your heart.
For that reason, here are some thoughts:
DO I WANT TO SPEND MONEY ON ANOTHER JOURNAL?
Your relationship with God is worth investing in. For the price of a shirt on the clearance rack at the Gap, you could say yes to a tool that can impact your life and the lives of all those you want to pray for. Maybe our product isn’t the right fit for you. That’s totally fine. Just know your prayer life is worth investing in. I have had countless people email me to say this little journal has changed their life. I can’t tell you how many people have called our $15 journal PRICELESS. If you are ready, for a change, take the plunge.
WILL I USE IT?
I have spent the past year hoping to help you answer this question!! And even though, I can’t force you to open it once the journal is in your hands, I did create the Fresh Start journal to help you get started and let you take our format out for a test spin. We all know getting started is normally the hardest part, right? It’s a 31-day devotional on prayer that I hope will jump start your prayer life and help you create a habit of praying daily as you develop a passion for it. It has a month set of prompts so you can test out our format as you read to see if it works for you!
HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER PRAYER JOURNALS ON THE MARKET?
Our journals are straightforward and simple. Our prayer journal was the first monthly prompted journal of it’s kind. As imitations have popped up, I have noticed a trend of making them more complicated as they try to differentiate. I even felt some pressure to add lots of other non-prayer related features to compete. But ultimately God reminded me of the purpose we started with. This is what sets ours apart, a format/function (fill out once a month) and design (clean with no distracting graphics) that will make it easy for you to pick up when you have 5 minutes to spare. Ultimately, I know if it’s too overwhelming, we won’t use it. With our journal, you know when you crack it open, you can focus on one thing: communing with God.
WILL IT REALLY HELP MY PRAYER LIFE?
That’s completely up to you. Whether you get our 6-month undated prayer journal, yearly journal or the Fresh Start journal, I want you to commit to one solid month of using it and then decide whether it’s for you long term. Those that I have talked to that HAVE used it consistently have seen God work tremendously. This is my prayer for you too!
IS IT WEIRD TO GIFT THESE TO PEOPLE?
Not at all!! This is such a great gift that is relatively inexpensive, but still super thoughtful and intentional. We have people come back every year and say they first got these as a Christmas or birthday gift and it meant so much that they return to buy it for all their friends too!
