Prayer is the perfect way to commence my day by humbly asking God, “Lord, what do you want me to do?” This simple act sets the tone for the rest of my day and allows me to prioritize Him over everything else in my busy schedule. Meditation and journaling have transformed into integral aspects of my life; something I simply cannot imagine doing without. It enables me to quiet down the noise around me and dive into a quiet time with God. Through meditation, I find peace in being fully present in each moment – acknowledging both gratitude for blessings received and seeking guidance for challenges ahead. If you desire to incorporate Bible meditation and journaling into your daily life, let me assure you that there is no single correct way to approach this practice. However, the fundamental principle lies in including three key elements: reading God’s word, and praying fervently, and remaining receptive to His voice through scripture or heartfelt conversations with Him. Additionally enriching your experience with a daily devotional can be incredibly beneficial too. Creating a designated space for quiet reflection also proves helpful; somewhere peaceful and free from distractions where one can truly concentrate on communing with God. Personally speaking, having such uninterrupted moments in the morning holds immeasurable value for me. Even if you only allocate five minutes initially—gradually building up more—it would undoubtedly be an excellent starting point. I highly value my quiet time in the morning, if you would start reading 5 minutes a day, and building it up that would be a great idea.~ Bill Greguska
How To Write A Bible Prayer Journal!
Meditation And Journaling With God’s Word:
- Start by reading a paragraph or two as soon as you forget what you just have read, then STOP! Go back and re-read what you’ve just read.
- Close your eyes and try to playback (paraphrase) what you’ve just read. Meditation isn’t memorization but is somewhat similar. This is just asking your mind to get working. If you can’t do it, go back and re-read the same paragraph(s). Repeat this until you can quickly paraphrase what you’ve just read with your eyes closed.
- Next, think about what you’ve just read. Say a quick prayer, asking the Holy Spirit to reveal the meaning of the text to you.
- Invite the Holy Spirit to convict you of what’s most important about these verses to you right now. Then listen.
What Type Of Christian Are You? Are You Spending Time With God?
To Meditation and Journaling on God’s Word:
- In its purest form, journaling can be re-writing a few of the verses in a notebook. Write it down in your journal if a scripture stood out in the passage.
- The next level of journaling is to write what God is trying to communicate to you.
- Next, write what you say to God as a written prayer. Tell God what YOU think of the verses.
- Next, write what you will do to apply the verses to your life.
- Lastly, think about these verses throughout your day. Re-read your notes during your lunchtime or a break in your day. Continue to listen as God speaks through His word.

Here Are A Few Bible Verses To Consider:
- James 1:22-25, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it–will be blessed in what he does.”
- Psalm 119:15-16, “I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways. I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word.”
- Psalm 1:1-2, “Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law, he meditates day and night.”
