Today, because a prayer journal without a quiet time with the Lord is not much use to anyone, I thought I would share with you my top 5 Bibles I recommend and personally use and love. Time spent reading God’s word is the perfect activity to pair with prayer journaling. That’s why I am sharing these Bibles with you today. These are all Bibles I have or have had in the past and can honestly recommend.
Bibles I Recommend
NIV Student Bible – This was the Bible I received from my church when I graduated from high school. It has been well used. I really love this Bible for its concordance and the many extra pages of commentary it has on each chapter of the Bible. I have used those many times in my journaling.
Life Application Study Bible NIV – I asked my parents for this Bible when I was in seminary. It has life application notes on every page for almost EVERY verse in the entire Bible. This a unique Bible with a ton of extra information.
Busy Mom’s Bible: Daily Inspiration Even If You Only Have One Minute – I received this Bible to review when I first started mom blogging. I have used it since then and find its daily devotions easy to read and understand. It doesn’t have as much in-depth information or commentary as the other two Bibles. It is a smaller Bible and easy to carry with you everywhere you go. This and the NIV Student Bible are the most used and well-worn Bibles I own.
NIV Couples’ Devotional Bible – My husband and I were given this Bible as a wedding gift. We both read it together and now my husband uses it as his devotional Bible he keeps at work with him. It has great devotionals in it. I gave my brother in law and sister in law one of these when they got married as well.
NIV Note-Taker’s Bible – This is my newest Bible which I received at Christmas a few years ago and is my first “journaling” Bible. Though there are other journaling Bible’s with wider margins to journal in I am happy with this one, as I have yet to be able to do much Bible journaling IN my Bible. I actually do more Bible journaling in an art journal instead.
