There are many different ways to talk to God through your prayer, and there even some things to avoid. One method of prayers is to write a journal (something like a diary of prayers). You’ll be amazed to see how God has been answering your prayers as you keep track of what you’ve been praying about.
Get a journal. Any journal will do, as long as it has paper and no writing in it. It could be a journal or a diary. It doesn’t matter. It should have a decent amount of pages in it, at least 70 so it will last for a while.
Find a hiding spot. You will be writing down your prayers in here, even the personal ones that you don’t want anyone else knowing about. It’s good if no one ever knows where your journal is. It’s even better if they don’t even know that it exists. It’s harder to find something you’re not looking for.
Write an entry. It doesn’t matter how you write it. Just write it. But make sure you include the date. You’ll want to know what day you wrote it later on. When you’re writing, don’t leave out anything. Just say your prayer that is going through your mind. Write exactly what you would say if you were “talking” to Him. Just talk to God.
Go back and read. Once you write an entry, don’t read it again until you fill up the journal. Once you fill it up, read everything, and you’ll be amazed at all of the prayers that got answered. It’s a really neat thing to realize that prayer works. When God has answered your prayer sometimes you will know but sometimes you wouldn’t know since it may be different from what you wanted or expect.
