Our prayer time will reflect this.  Our prayer time may also be determined by the season of our life. Schedules vary greatly among young families, singles and the retired. We should adjust and adapt the priority of our prayer time to the demands of our current stage of life.”

Proper preparation will enhance our time spent in prayer.

Consider:

The Place
A prayer bench
a desk
a comfortable chair
or even your kitchen table.
A prayer room
church auditorium
your study
your porch
or even your bedroom.
While you walk
while you drive

These are just some of the places for prayer.

In fact, any location where prayer is needed can become a place of prayer.. .
churches
hospitals
schools
high-crime districts
in cities
particular neighborhoods
places of special events
government buildings
parks
city streets.

Praying At Different Times

Our culture seems to demand shifting of daily schedules. The work day begins at greatly varying times for each of us. Our prayer time will reflect this.

Our prayer time may also be determined by the season of our life. Schedules vary greatly among young families, singles and the retired. We should adjust and adapt the priority of our prayer time to the demands of our current stage of life.
