Thanks to all who have responded to share your prayer life.
I like to be a prayerful person but it is always a struggle to keep up with my prayer time. It encourages me a great deal to hear how you pray and the reasons you are doing it.
I asked about prayer room in the house because it is very convenient to ‘retreat’ into it especially in a bigger family though if you have the house alone to yourself of course you can practically do anything on your won.
MaryT777 – I don’t pray the Divine Mercy but my wife does. It is a great blessing for you to keep up with the three o’clock. You mentioned about the ‘treasury of Catholic prayers’ – I agree whole heartedly. It is truly a privilege that we can always use these prayers anytime but especially when we are dry and do not feel like praying.
**Kliska **– thanks for the reply. I have Protestant friends and they are some of the most prayerful people that I have known. I can understand when you prayed ‘sitting, standing, kneeling, laying down, even with my face on the floor.’ I do that that sometimes too and the privacy of a room would be good. We have a small room adoration room in a chapel, not a church, where our priests stay, but we can go there to pray. And yes, we can prostrate on the floor. And yes, praying extemporaneously, allowing ourselves to pour our heart to God.
judynurse – I am sorry about your husband; you must have missed him very much. Perhaps the best time one can spend with each other is in prayer. I am sure you are glad to have done that and what a loving memory it must be when you are praying alone now. I am sure he is listening somewhere in the heavenly kingdom.
**Marie5890 **- yeah, relationship with the Divine is not complicated; they say God is a prayer away. How good is our God that he can be reached when we need him.
**tawny **– Oh, to have a group going before the Blessed Sacrament, what a blessed way to spend time together!
**andrewstx **– hope you are keeping well, andrewstx. It is a pleasant surprise that Orthodox do pray the Hail Mary and Glory Be too. We have a corner where we enthroned the Bible with a chair beside it and it can also acts as a prayer corner too.
Eduardo06sp – wow, for one who isn’t a ‘prayerful person’, praying three times a day of 15, 10 and 30 minutes is really amazing brother. Yes, I would count Eucharistic adoration as personal prayer, meditating before the Eucharistic Lord.
Neofight – shower as a prayer room, why not? LOL.The Lord can be found anywhere and where our heart is.
sousley – I always admire those who do devotional prayer because it is not easy to keep up with. Great prayer.
