When people ask me to pray for them I would often forget. I now keep a prayer journal that really helps me. I also keep track of answered prayers, which I can give praise for. Does anyone else keep a prayer journal?

  • I usually pray for them right there, but then forget to say a special one later. Having a journal sounds like a great idea. Some of us need help with our memories and we need to do whatever we need to remember. I have been thinking about doing this myself. I hate writting though, and I that is why I haven't. Keeping track of the answered prayer is a great idea too. I like that. (Some of my answered prayers stare me in the face all the time and so I don't forget them! LOL!)

  • No but I do pray right then. If I dont I will forget. I pray for healing right then ( why wait?) as well as any other needs!

  • I try ... I find it much more helpful in remembering who to pray for and I also have the benefit of watching those prayers get answered.

  • I haven't yet but I sure do need to. I do often pray for people right away but sometimes I feel the need to continue and, like you say, end up forgeting. I really need to get organized too. LOL!!!

  • I do not keep one but when people ask for a prayer I usually offer it right than, and later when I do prayers I will aks for healing for those who are sick, struggling, suffering, etc, mostly not mentioning names but I think since god knows who is, than there is no need to, plus He already received the earlier prayer I sent when someone asked me to pray for them....
