I mix it up a little bit. There is a spare bedroom in my house that I was using pretty much exclusively for a while, but now I find that I usually end up in either the living room or the kitchen for my prayer time. Right now it’s just myself, my wife, and our pup, and I’m usually either a) up before my wife or b) up after she leaves for work (depending on the day), so I have the benefit of having free reign of the house. 😀

Hi, David. I loved this article. I do not want to come across as legalistic or religious, but today I didn’t have time with God in prayer and I have been miserable since.

Hi David,
Your article was an eye eye-opener! You spoke my mind.You know,after 36 years of married life, since past 6 years I am having my alone time with God! in one of my 3 bedroom house.
Believe me! after years and years of praying,fasting ,crying out to God,Almighty God has delivered me!
My husband,my son and his wife,and myself live in our home.
Jesus proves His love for me every single day!
My day starts between 4 and 4.30am (indian time), almost everyday,till about 6.30 – 7am, I spend my time reading,writing the Scriptures,studying all the given references,praying for family and interceding for many lost souls,etc..etc.. I don’t enjoy anything in this world, except spending my time with my Lord!

Bro David, please do write to me, if you don’t mind.
Sis Minnie

Hi, David ~ Your article has some great suggestions! I have 10 year old twins and, like Minnie, I spend time with the Lord in the [early] morning, when all is quiet…I also find my car is a great place for worship….and my office rounds out my top three prayer spots.

All I want to do is be with the Lord. To shut myself up with Him for hours. I am now allowing myself to be vulnerable before Him. I tell Him everything, and share my heart with Jesus and ask Him to share His with me. I am wanting to devour His Word. I have the mindset of just let me have You even if You never bless me again. I couldn’t pull myself off my knees the other day. I just wanted to be with God. It hasn’t always been like this. Before I was truly saved you couldn’t get me to pray. All I want to do is be with the Lord in relationship. I have a growing love for His Word. I talk to Him about everything. Am I getting on the right track?

What a beautiful comment! You are more than on the right track. You are right where God wants you to be!! And more than that, your comment lit a fire in me and a desire to have that intimacy with Jesus again!! Thank you so much!!

Hi David,
Thanks for that wonderful piece. I am blessed and what I make of the article is that there shouldn’t be any reason for not having quiet time with God. I think I need to do more, especially learning that a sister among those who have commented, uses her bathroom for her quiet place. God bless you.

I have a young son and I am also going to nursing school full-time. Often I find it hard to balance school life, family, and my relationship with God. I’ve had to get creative and consistent with my alone time with Him, by using my free time the best I can. I leave my Bible on my bed so each morning I read scripture, or pray. I bring my Bible to school with me and read it in my car during breaks or lunch and I pray to God on my way to school in my car before listening to my Chrisitan music. Then if the need strikes me to pray throughout the day, I do so at my desk quietly in my head; no one can even tell and it makes me feel closer to Him! I also try to make a habit of talking to God on my walks with my son when I get home. And lastly, I wasn’t sure if I would admit this one, but seeing the paragraph of the sister praying in the bathroom, I felt boldened. Sometimes if my day is just too busy, I’ll pray in the shower! At first I felt this was inappropriate, how dare I pray to the Lord naked?! But after some research and praying, I no longer feel ashamed of it. It’s quiet, peaceful, and it is a truly humbling experience for me; he already sees us “naked” anyway (physically and spiritally). It is a vulnerable experience that has worked for me to feel closer to God everyday!

Hi everyone,lm so blessed reading all the ideas where everyone spends time worshiping God.Its very encouraging.God bless you all.As for me,l sometime do it in the park during my breaks,or just sit in the car.One day l was reading a testimony of a girl of her love for the Lord on Facebook,and she mentioned first think when she gets up she prepares herself for devotion right their and then in bed,l thought this was a great idea, that way,before you’re distracted by anything, your focus is God first thing, so lm giving it a go.

I am at a place in my life where I finally have come full circle that I need to have and desire to have a close relationship with God. That all my past decisions and changes have not been what I thought I needed to make me happy and whole. I am seeking time, peace, love, understanding to help me find a place where I can visit or live to start this journey with God.

My place to pray has changed many times over the years. When I first became a Christian, I was single and could pray anywhere in my apartment. But my favorite times were walking around a huge water reservoir, listening to Christian music and worshipping the Lord. Later, when I got married and started having children, the bathroom became my prayer closet. When we moved, the new house had a huge walk in closet, so I prayed there. When I went back to work, I would drop my husband and daughter off and then park and pray in my car before I had to be at work. On my lunch break, I would sometimes go to a nearby lake and park and pray. This started what has become my favorite place of prayer which is still my car. It’s the only place I feel I can be loud, sing, cry or pray however I feel without interruption or concern about being too loud, etc.
