In March of 2016, after seeing the movie War Room, I looked around my house trying to find even a small corner that I could call my war room.
After coming up empty handed, I came up with a great idea!
I would make my war room a journal.
Not only was creating a war room journal more practical for me, I could take with me anywhere, I could let it grow with me as I grew in my prayer life.
It wasn’t long before I realized that many other people were creating war room journals as well.
Some of them elaborate.
Some of them simple, like mine.
I love the idea of a war room journal, because it’s a great place to write out our prayers.
Writing out our prayers is a great form of prayer, because it forces us to slow down and really think about our prayers as we’re writing.
With Thanksgiving only a few weeks away, here are 20 Thanksgiving journal prompts for your war room.
