Prayer is not some practice we will one day perfect or a method we can eventually master, but instead a lifelong journey of our hearts awakening to the reality that God is with us.
Meditative prayer is the first step on our inner prayer journey because it lays the groundwork for deep and meaningful communion with God that is rooted in his Word.
What are some possible places in your house (or elsewhere) to consistently spend time in prayer with God? Which one would work best for you, given your current life circumstances? What can you do to make this place special and/or ready for your time with God?
From baby believers to seminary professors, from homeschool moms to full-time pastors—we all struggle when it comes to this gritty discipline of making prayer in solitude a part of our regular schedule. This, then, is where we must begin our pilgrimage—with a set time of day and a consistent length of time for prayer.
