PRAYERS: REQUESTS & ANSWERS
Before the Bible Reading Plan is the Prayer List. Here you will  record those items, people, and upcoming plans that you are  praying for. Enter the date that you began praying for this and  when God answers it, enter that date as well. When you  complete one journal, transfer those prayers yet to be answered  to your new one. Pray until God answers.

BIBLE READING PLAN
Following a reading program is important for accountability,  discipline, and for systematic instructions in God’s Word. This  Program is found in the Bible Reading section.

DAILY PAGES
The Daily Pages will be where you will make entries as you follow the Bible Reading plan. You will need to number these pages individually.

HOW TO JOURNAL

READ

Find the Bible reading corresponding to today’s date from the Bible Reading Plan. Turn to the chapter in your Bible, pray and ask the Holy Spirit to teach and reveal Jesus to you. Mark off the dailyreading as you complete it to keep yourself accountable.

Example:

“What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops.”  (Matt 10:27 ESV)

CONSIDER

Read the passages and note anything the Lord impresses on you as a personal word to be applied. When you read with an open heart, the Lord will give you words of encouragement, direction, and correction. (2 Timothy 3:16)

Example:

If I am not hearing Him in the darkness, what will I speak in the light?!  If I am not hearing Him whisper in my ear, what will I proclaim on the housetops?!

CONNECT

When God has revealed a special lesson of life to you, turn to a fresh page in your “Daily Pages” to record what God has just shown you.

Example:

What a great word! This scripture reminds me to not only talk to God in prayer, but equally important is to hear Him in prayer!

COMMUNICATE

Conclude your daily devotional time by turning to the Prayer List and praying for what you have just written.

Example:

“Dear Jesus, help me to hear you today!  I want to be still that I may hear Your marching orders for my day, for my week, for my life.  Speak Lord!  Your servant is listening!”
