Prayer Notebook Plan: Make prayer a consistent priority in your life

I am so thankful to be able to share the Prayer Notebook Plan by Ruth Bumgardner with you.  Her system allows you to form a consistent plan for praying for your family.

Sample worksheets

When you are done praying, a small colorful post-it note will keep your place for you.  If you have short term prayer requests, she has a system that doesn’t involve messy, crossed out pages!

I began to be interested in Ruth’s Prayer Notebook Plan because of my sister-in-law’s enthusiasm.  I was intrigued by the beginning pamphlet, “Pray about Praying.”  The pamphlet, included in the sample or full notebook, includes praying to “change my focus from my own satisfaction and happiness to Your glory and eternal purposes,”  a principle taken from the Bible.  (See Philippians 2: 13.)

Ruth Bumgardner says:

“As I reflect upon the things the Lord has taught me over the years, I can see how He has guided each one of my steps. The Lord has brought me to the realization that PRAYER must be a consistent priority for me to see Him do all that He can do in and through my life. After many years of learning I have come to the following two realizations that have yielded tremendous results in my life.”

  • The Glory of God
  • Learning from God’s Word what HIS goal is through my praying.
  •  The Value of Order
  • Seeking God’s power to develop an organized prayer method that encourages consistency and focus.

The methods used in this prayer notebook can work for anyone. I have always struggled with order, so I know what it is like to so badly want to be organized and not have that natural ability. Through praying about my praying God has helped me develop a tool that anyone can customize.

For this to be successful, you first must be faithful in praying about your praying.

If you pray and wait on the Lord you will be amazed at how the Holy Spirit will guide you and teach you. He will help you develop a “tailor made” prayer life.

Remember you were made and fashioned by our wise heavenly Father who is well aware of your season of life.

The notebook comes with an easy to follow instruction booklet with illustrations. It takes prayer and effort to set it up, but once you do, you’ll find your prayer time a delight as you see God bring about His answers.

Comments from others:   “I am so grateful for my Prayer Notebook. For the first time in my life, I am not concerned about waiting until the product is finished before using it! This will be a lifelong notebook in process, and I am enjoying it every day. I have had a notebook before, just listing verses and my request and date answered, but Ruth, your willingness to share how God has led in your prayer process and organization of this notebook has been for me one of the greatest blessings of my Christian walk.”

“My whole walk with God the last 12 years has been about what I can do for God. Now I am laying my requests before Him and letting Him do the work in and through me. The prayer notebook . . . is exactly what I needed. I believe it will change others as well.”

 “Your method of prayer has totally changed my prayer life…. thank you…”

 “I love being guided by what I’ve written down so I can pray for the eternal, not just the urgent. I know that I may not see how He answered those Big Prayers until eternity, but I also know that this is the right way to come to His throne.”

 “. . . I’m finding it overwhelming at moments, as I carefully phrase my deepest concerns for people I love, especially my children and grandchildren, and find scripture promises for each prayer. Tears come quickly.”
