The Battle Plan Prayer Journal, modeled after the one used in the movie, The War Room, comes in two sizes, the stationery size, which is 3.7 x 0.6 x 5.7 inches and weighs 3.2 ounces, or the paperback size which is 5.1 x 0.6 x 8.2 inches and weighs 6.4 ounces. Mine is the smaller of the two.
The Battle Plan is bound in a soft brown, suede-like material. What I like about it is the size. It is perfect for carrying in a purse. It could possibly even fit in a pocket.
Although it is mostly pages that are lined, there are several introductory pages, followed by pages for prayer requests with space for the date of the request and when it was answered, along with a Bible verse. On the opposite side is a space for journaling. Also, there are sections divided into specific types of prayers. For example, prayers for each day of the week with ideas for what to pray for, prayers of adoration, prayers of confession, etc. The book ends with guided prayers, such as prayers for the workday, prayers for forgiving someone and for someone sick in the hospital, to name a few. There are little nuggets scattered throughout – things like the meaning of the cross-hairs, scripture to pray and guided prayer.
One warning, though, if you get the stationery size, the lines are very small-scale, and there is not much room to write. Nonetheless, it’s perfect for tucking prayer requests in the back pocket of the book or for tracking your prayers.
I received the book from Lifeway. However, I was under no obligation to write a review.
The Battle Plan Prayer Journal provides users with a prayer planning, execution, and tracking resource that they can carry with them no matter where they go. The journal is small enough to fit in a pocket or purse, but sturdy enough to last through a hardback cover, elastic closure, and ribbon. The content is far from plain lined sheets and instead provides the user with guided prayer prompts, prayer request organization, scripture reminders, answered prayer tracking, and more.
