A quiet prayer corner
Of course as believers we can talk to God anywhere, at any time. But it's also important to have a quiet place where we can spend time in prayer at the start of each new day. My "prayer place" varies. In warm weather I love to have my quiet time on our screened front porch, with birds singing all around. Sometimes I will pray in a comfy living room chair. But now, as the cool weather comes on and it's still dark outside when I have my prayer time, I like this cozy corner in our bedroom. There's a chair, a little lamp, a small quilt for warmth and a little table with a coaster for my mug of tea.
What about you? If you don't have a quiet corner for your prayer time, look around your house for such a space. You will find it such a blessing!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
