The goal of the #SBC30DayFaith Prayer Journaling Challenge is for us to really push to build our faith through practical obedience to God the entire month of January. Watch this video from Fatima to learn more about it.

We’re using the S.O.A.P. Bible Study Method for the challenge. We’re reading and meditating on a scripture provided by Fatima each day and then break it down using the S.O.A.P. Method.

The S.O.A.P. Method simply stands for:

SCRIPTURE – Write down the scripture in your journal.

OBSERVATION – Go deeper, what does the scripture mean/what is it all about? Look into the chapter the scripture is in as well for context.

APPLICATION – How can you apply it to your life?

PRAYER – Write out a prayer aligned with the scripture and then pray it out loud.

And das it!

Prayer Journaling Challenge

So today is DAY 4 of the challenge and I wanna share with you my journal entry. I’m going to commit to sharing my journaling every single day this month so you can join in and follow along my journey.

Scripture:

Hebrews 12:14

Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.

Observation:

We are to live in a way where we treat everyone that we come in contact with with kindness, love, and respect. We should always be at peace with one another, no quarreling as it is not pleasing in God’s sight. God ain’t gonna bless us otherwise. God has given us the guide on how to treat one another. The way we treat others is supposed to reflect Christ because people are watching! This is how you will win souls to Christ — by your actions towards others!

Application:

I will work on guarding my tongue and think before I act or speak. I will strive to live in peace and holiness on a daily basis through study and prayer. I will treat everyone that I speak to with kindness and show them God’s love.

Prayer:

Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for another opportunity to get things right to draw closer to you! Thank you for never leaving my side. You are an awesome Father! Lord, please forgive me for those times that I didn’t display holiness. For the times that I wasn’t filled with peace. Lord, guide me to be more like you so that when I interact with someone, your LIGHT shines through me. I want to make disciples for you and I can’t do that by being nasty and living foul out here in these streets. Show me how to be at peace despite what’s going on in the world around me. Despite what I may be personally going through. I want to be an example. Make me an example Father so I can show people what Kingdom living looks like and the benefits it provides. Thank you Lord for the victory! Amen!

I pray that this has blessed you as it has blessed me and I challenge you to join me! Click here to learn more and get started TODAY.

Now let’s talk about it. What’s something that you need to implement into your life that will draw you closer to God? Do you use a prayer journal? Sound off in the comments, I wanna hear from you!

P.S. If you thought that this was insanely awesome or made you think about someone that you know, please share this with them!
