In this mixed methods study, the researcher investigated the effects of visual prayer journaling (VPJ) on the work stress and current self-care practices of Christian care professionals (CCPs), including pastors and ministry workers. The researcher utilized a three-hour visual prayer journaling workshop, pre-test and post-test administration of the Professional Quality of Life (ProQOL) scale (version 5), a two-week period of private journaling by participants, and a follow-up survey. A small sample size (N=5) negated statistical significance and no significant patterns were detected among participants’ ProQOL scores. The qualitative results of the study revealed five overarching themes. They included: (a) shift of focus to the positive and especially to God; (b) expression, transformation and containment of overwhelming affect and expression of more positive, self-regulating emotions; (c) deepened self-awareness; (d) transformation and newness; (e) nature. Further research was recommended.
