Free Prayer Journal (Word Document)

I created this a year ago, and with a new year upon us, I thought it would be good to post again for anyone out there looking for a good way to organize their prayer life this year. Enjoy!

Please note that I just updated this file! It’s completely print ready right now, or you can edit and print it. This is a customizable Prayer Journal in a Word Document. It includes a daily prayer schedule set up, places to include unsaved friends and family members, missionaries, ministries, as well as personal prayer requests and praises. It also contains a daily Bible reading calendar, a way to keep track of Scripture memory, and some additional resources and scriptures. As a note, the scripture passages are from the ESV. I might be adding a KJV version, and I’ll also upload an older version of Word if there are requests for it.

The formatting is designed to be printed and put into a half inch, half sheet three ring binder. Simply download the zip folder, extract the file, and edit the document however you choose. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Access to a printer (it is formatted already for two pages per sheet, so just print on plain 8.5 x 11 paper)
  • Access to a paper cutter (unless you want to free-hand it with scissors…not recommended)
  • A three ring hole puncher
  • A 1/2″ three ring binder designed for 5.5″ x 8.5″ pages (half sheets)

I hope you enjoy, and please leave comments on what you like or dislike about the set up.

  1. Shalom~
    I was looking for God’s character and found your website. I thank you that I got your prayer journal download. It was from God I believe. This is awesome and will help me so much. God bless your ministry.
    In Christ,

    • Thanks for stopping by, and so glad God used the site and journal to be a blessing. We are still getting things set up on the site and hope to have the “meat” of it completed within a couple of months.

  2. Admittedly I tend to be technology challenged but when I try to open your free prayer journal all I get is computer garbage. Any suggestions?

    • Hi Ellen, you will need to make sure that you have Word installed on your computer as it is a Word document. Also, you have to extract the contents form the zipped folder. Can you give me a step-by-step of what you tried to do?

  3. Thank you for this template. I have been looking for something like this for a long time. Know that it will be used regularly!
    With gratitude,

  4. Thank you so much for sharing! I’m really looking forward to adding this to my existing prayer binder to take it to the next level! I can tell it will enable me to grow so much closer to The Lord! Many, many thanks!
