As we pray for others one common way to keep track of those prayer requests, perhaps even the results, is to keep a prayer list. You might keep this list
- perhaps as a page in your journal,
- maybe on your computer or tablet or phone,
- maybe a note on your refrigerator or in your Bible,
- maybe a separate small notebook you can carry in your purse, keep at your desk or beside your bed.

By predetermined groups:
I like to group my prayer lists in categories
You might choose a particular time of day or week to pray through your list. You might make this part of your prayer routine along side Bible reading, devotions, or other prayers. You might listed to Christian music as you pray. You might make this a regular family prayer time, each contributing to the list, taking turns praying together. These prayers can be as simple as God Bless prayers. They can just be an outpouring of what God puts in your heart to pray for each person. How long you prayer or what you say doesn't matter as much as the effort to lift others up to God in prayer.
