Not Alone Series: Prayer

It's Tuesday again! Joining the link-up hosted by the wonderful Morgan at Follow and Believe & Jen at Jumping in Puddles

How do you pray at home? Do you have a special place in your house? How do you make that area special? Comfy chair? Prayer cards? What suggestions do you have to make a home alter? If you don't do this, in what ways can you begin?

Laura shared a picture of her bed, and I'm tempted to do the same. When I wake up, sometimes I turn on a chapter of the Gospels to listen to as I get ready will myself out of bed. I'll pray in my bathroom while I get ready for the day, especially for friends when they need it.

I also pray in the car, and not just the "God, help me" as I avoid stupid drivers. I pray for the future and about decisions and problems and people. 

At night, I'm back on my bed, journalling. It is my goal to journal at least 3 times a week, but that has not always been my habit. I love journalling my conversation with God, and it's awesome to look back and see what God has done in response to specific scenarios and prayers.

I really like what my roomie Catherine said about prayer: God is not a genie, and the Psalms are a great place to look for "templates" for prayer.

Thank you, Jen and Morgan, for these prayer accountability partners! I'm excited for that, because who does not need more prayer in their life? 

Amen! :)


  1. Ooh, good idea to pray for friends as you drive home from being with them! Gonna start doing that :)

  2. I laughed when I read about you praying in your car, I prayer in my car too. When I start the car I pray for safety and the idiotic driver but I also have discussion with God about what's going on in my life, the future and all that especially in traffic might as well make good use of my time going nowhere. I'm planning to read and prayer through the Psalms this Advent

  3. When I pray in the bathroom, it's because I had to rush out of bed so quickly that I couldn't do waking-up prayers as I got up! :x

  4. Haha, usually morning prayers are rushed simply because they are in the morning ;)
