Preparing Your Place of Prayer

Preparing Your Place of Prayer

March 25, 2022

It can be difficult to find the time to pray. Having a special place designated for prayer can both motivate you to spend time with God as well as keep distractions at bay. The benefits of prayer are too numerous to list here, but we can certainly highlight a few ways to take full advantage of your own personal place of prayer. 

Make It Comfortable

You should have a few things in your personal prayer sanctuary. A comfortable chair or prayer bench will help you approach God without any difficulty. You’ll also want somewhere to place your Bible or maybe even a desk if you plan to use this same spot to study the Word of God. Remember, prayer and Bible study go hand in hand. 

Soften Your Heart with Music

A single day in your life can throw a lot at you and when you go to your personal place of prayer, you may not be in the frame of mind to pray. That’s why some Christian music or even melody that loosens the heartstrings can do wonders to get you in the right frame of mind to talk with God. 

Other Items that Can Help

Having a place to pray is one of the best ways to connect with God regularly, but that doesn’t mean that it’s only for prayer or Bible study. Journaling about your day or what your prayers were about can help you recall your experiences later. Having a prayer list can help you keep track of all of your thoughts and prayers that need to be made for yourself and others. This will also help you maintain consistency in your prayer life.

The more time you spend in your personal prayer space the more opportunity you have to spend time in the presence of the Lord. Taking these simple actions can help you have a great place to talk to God.

Remember: “It’s the Situation Keeping My Connection with Him”.
