My Favorite Prayer Journal for Moms

Are you a mom who wants to pray for your children? In this post I share my favorite prayer journal for moms. This journal helps me as a mom pray consistently and deeply for my 4 kids.

WHY SHOULD MOMS PRAY?

It’s no secret the enemy has come to kill, steal, and destroy (see John 10:10).
And over the last year and a half, the attacks of the enemy seem to have increased. Fear, intimidation, hatred, repression of light and truth, blatant disregard for God and His word… it all seems to have ramped up.

Have you noticed that too?

Never before have we quite seen such onslaught against children in particular. (By the way, this has always been a tactic of the devil. Remember Pharaoh killing all the baby boys and God rescuing Moses for the Exodus? And again in Jesus’s day, Herod doing the same?)

The enemy’s sights are on our kids and he’s taken aim. Not only is he literally out to kill and destroy them, he’s out to kill their appetite and dull their hunger for God with addictive replacements.

–> He’s out to cut off their access to truth by those who hate God and by those with ulterior motives of greed, power, and lust.

–> He’s out to steal their innocence, planting seeds of doubt, distrust and hatred from an early age, and sowing lies to rob them of their God-given identity.

–> And ultimately, He is out to destroy their trust in God and veil their eyes from a genuine understanding of God’s character and the hope of Jesus Christ.

We know this. We see this playing out before our very eyes.

And in the midst of this, God invites us to do something. Something seemingly simple and weak.  He invites us to pray.

THE INFLUENCE OF A PRAYING MOM

As the people of God, you and I can take heart! Because we are given an incredible opportunity to influence current and future generations through prayer. Regardless of how dark the world gets, there is always something we as moms can do– pray.

And it isn’t without effect.

In the book of James we find the example of Elijah. James 5:17-18 says,

“Elijah was as human as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for three and a half years! Then, when he prayed again, the sky sent down rain and the earth began to yield its crops (NLT).”


This passage reminds us of 3 simple things:

  1. Elijah was an individual person. A single individual can make a huge, powerful, and lasting impact. Never underestimate the difference YOU can make through prayer. Even if your spouse doesn’t. Even if your extended family. Even if your church won’t. Even if everyone else thinks you’re crazy.
  2. Elijah was an imperfect person. You and I need not be “spiritual giants” to have a powerful and effective prayer life. God chooses the weak things of the world to confound the strong. God doesn’t require us to be perfect people, just praying ones. Praise God!
  3. Elijah was a praying person. What Scripture does NOT call attention to about Elijah is just as important as what it DOES. Scripture doesn’t call out his race, gender, beliefs about the hot topic of his day, or any number of other interesting facts. It draws attention to the fact that he took his responsibility and opportunity to pray seriously. The question is, will we?

HOW TO HAVE A POWERFUL PRAYER LIFE

Now maybe you’re saying, “I want to do this one thing right. I want a powerful prayer life like Elijah! I definitely want to improve in this area…but I don’t know what to pray. How do I know what to pray for without being repetitive, feeling overwhelmed, or praying my own will instead of God’s?”

Well let’s talk about that.

I personally have discovered I’m a bit of a prayer wimp. 😬 I find it hard to follow through with most prayer plans… but what I HAVE found that works for me is to pray Scripture. 

Praying Scripture allows me to have something to pray when I don’t know what to say. It gives fresh passion and life to my spirit as I pray. And it fills me with confidence that my words aren’t in vain- that I’m praying God’s will and not my own. Praying Scripture allows God’s word do the heavy lifting for me in prayer.

If you’ve been a reader for awhile, you know that praying God’s promises in particular has transformed me AND my prayer life. I wanted to bring that same transformation to moms as they pray over their children. 

That’s why our Praying the Promises Mother’s Legacy journal  is designed to guide you through praying nothing short of the powerful promises of God over your children.

There’s nothing else out there like it.

This journal can help you consistently keep your mind on the promises of God as they relate to your children, all while asking God to fulfill His word in their lives. Day after day you’ll pray God’s word over your loved ones and learn to confidently stand on His promises. Talk about a power punch!

When you put all that into perspective, it’s a pretty amazing little tool!

If you would like one of these prayer journals for moms, be sure to grab one right here- {but hurry! Quantities are limited and once they are gone, they’re gone :) }

This is definitely my favorite prayer journal for moms. I think it will quickly become one of yours as well!
