The Place of Prayer

We are creatures of habit. Have you ever noticed how you can find the same people seated in the same place week after week on Sunday mornings? Or at the same desks in your college classroom? No one has assigned them to sit there, but they just naturally do it.

Of course, we can pray anywhere and at any time. Yet, it is great to have a specific place for personal prayer. Having a special place that is set aside helps to reinforce the habit of having a special time set aside as well. The converse can also be true. When we are travelling and I don’t have a specific spot for prayer, my prayer life tends to falter.

Luke 11:1 reads, “One day Jesus was praying in a certain place.” Was this “certain place” a frequented, special place? Jesus also seemed to like out-of-the way places for prayer. Going away to the wilderness or mountains is mentioned more than any others.

Where is your sweet place for prayer?

    Insightlful. Looking back in retrospect there is a particular chair in our home that I find myself mostly using during prayer. Not by design though
