Day 24: Where to Pray

Prayer can happen anytime, anywhere. God is never more than a prayer away!

Prayer can happen anytime, anywhere. Have you ever had a cell phone conversation cut off because you lost your signal? That will never happen with prayer, because God’s Spirit is everywhere and even lives inside of you! 2 Chronicles 16:9 says, "For the eyes of the LORD move to and fro throughout the earth, the He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His..." So wherever you are—whether it’s the grocery store, your room, or your job—God always hears you.

"The LORD is far from the wicked, but he hears the prayers of the righteous." Proverbs 15:29

"With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit and with this in view be on alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints." Ephesians 6:18

Jesus knew this better than anyone else. He said, “Father, thank you for hearing me. I know you always hear me” (John 11:42). As a Christian, you have the same assurance as Jesus to know that God hears your every prayer. This is a great source of comfort, as God is never more than a prayer away. He is ready to hear you at all times, but sometimes to hear clearly from Him, you have to go somewhere without distraction. Have you ever tried to have an important conversation with a friend in a very loud restaurant? Not easy. Just the same, often we need to find a quiet place to pray and connect with God. Listen to what Jesus did: “It was very early in the morning, while it was still dark. Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place and was praying there” (Mark 1:35). Do you have a special place you can meet with God? If not, find a place to get away from the noise of your life and spend time there with God today. You will feel refreshed and find it easier to connect with God.

"It was at this time that He went off to the mountain to pray and He spent the whole night in prayer to God" Luke 6:12

Day 25: How to Pray

Even though we can talk to God anywhere at any time, having a special time and place for longer conversations is very helpful. When and where is your special prayer place? Tell someone about it.
