How do you make a prayer list?
Some people’s prayer lists cover matters from personal concern to international concern. Prayer list items range from the neighbor over the fence, to the missionary abroad to foreign governments. Your list does not have to be this wide.
Making a prayer list is as simple as writing down the things that concern you. Everything from your spiritual growth, to your health, to your family, to your job. There is nothing that is too big or too little for your prayer list. If it concerns you, it also concerns God.
If you are new to making prayer lists, I have put some examples below using the templates in this post. Check them out.
Printable prayer list template
These pretty prayer list templates will allow you to make a list in a brain-dump kind of format. With the blue and yellow prayer sheet, just write down what you want to remember prayer about. There is no particular category of order.
With this beautiful pink and blue prayer template, you can write down your prayer concerns based on the category they fall in. There is also a blank copy without lines for if you wish to create your own prayer categories.
How do I keep track of prayer requests
This is a good question. I try to pray for people right on spot as they request prayers because you know the human brain can be like a strainer. But, requests keep coming every day. And then there are some requests that are on-going. Things that need to be kept before God for a long time.
Using a prayer request tracker template is a good idea. This prayer request tracker will allow you to write down the name of the person you are praying for or describe the situation. You can also write notes about any updates and/or when God does answer.
Prayer list examples
If you are still struggling with how this all works, here are a couple of examples of prayer lists. I used the same templates in this post.
You can also just use typing sheets or a composition book to do this. But some people like their stationery to be pretty because, you know, motivation is and all.
What is a prayer list at a church?
Most churches have a prayer ministry. This ministry is fueled by requests from the members to pray about various things. To keep track of all these requests, they will create a prayer list. A list like this is a good idea for many reasons.
First, the body of faith will know what is going on with each other. Documenting these requests also helps to keep track of how and when God answers those prayers. It can serve as encouragement and instruction for the body of Christ.
