  • This reminds me of a great conversation that I had with a co worker one day. I was under my desk on my knees..picking something up. She snarked at me..."What are ya doing?..Praying down there? ..without thinking...(it must have been the Holy Spirit.) I replied "heaven's no...If I got down on my knees everytime that I prayed...I would never get up. " LOL

    In other words...I pray all day long. Whenever I need or want to. Just a lil wish or hope that I send up for myself or for others.

    I look at prayer like an ongoing conversation with my Father, our father. It is not formal for me....I ask alot of questions and ask for guidance.

    God hears every prayer...sometimes the answer is no, or wait...but he does answer.

    hope that helps!

  • It depends on what my purpose for prayer is. We think that prayer is just asking God for stuff but it really is about communication and building that relationship with Him. So if I want to have an indepth conversation or really focused prayer time I generally want a quiet spot without too many distractions. The best place is my living room, early in the morning before the kids and hubby are up. If it is just a "good morning God, thank you for...., short prayer then I just sort of say it or think it, He hears me. At dinner time we have family prayer, we close our eyes and hold hands. Usually DH prays. And I pray at meals, close my eyes and thank God. So lots of different ways depending on the purpose.

  • I "pray" throughout the day. It's more like a conversation with the Lord and Lady, though. I do sometimes have more "formal" prayers, though, in my Circle at my alter.
