A prayer space at home at any time can be a focus and a comfort. Create your own permanent prayer station using things that are most helpful to you in reaching out to God.
1. Choose a place where your prayer station will not be disturbed. A corner of the room, a windowsill or a tea tray set on a piece of furniture. Have a seat nearby.
2. Add a cross, candle, a bible, a prayer card, photographs, a map, paper for writing on, stones, water etc. Anything that contributes to a prayerful atmosphere, flowers or plants as well if you wish.
3. Aim to visit your prayer space daily and when passing jot down things to remind you to pray for later. You can use as many ‘prompts’ as you want, or just be silent.
4. Arrange with one or two others to be in your prayer stations at a given time, light your candle if it’s safe to do so. Pray together on a chosen theme, each other’s families,the sick, the bereaved,church leaders and members, your community, people suffering across the world etc.
Pray in the Spirit on all occasions, with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all God’s people.Ephesians chapter 6 verse 18
