Preparing for prayer
Some suggestions as you prepare for prayer:
- Find a place for prayer that is comfortable, where you can be alert; a place that is conducive to peaceful listening to God away from the distractions of television, cell phones, and other people.
- Do what you can to create an environment for prayer; besides choosing a quiet place, give consideration to the use of a lighted candle or lamp, perhaps a picture, an icon, statue or symbol that would help you be more conscious of the Sacred in your presence.
- Find a time that is the same each day - whether morning before beginning your work, at midday, or in the evening. Experiment with times for prayer until you find the time when you and God are at your best.
