Prayer Journal Template

A PATTERN OF PRAYER

This is the template I use in my quiet time.  Feel free to copy it and adjust it to meet your own need.  There are many different types of journals and patterns of prayer, this is just one of many.

The eight forms of adoration, confession, renewal, petition, intercession, affirmation, thanksgiving, and closing prayer are all illustrated in the Lord’s model prayer.  Let us follow His example in prayer.
