Tips for Establishing a Regular Prayer Time

  • Find a time and place with the fewest distractions. Put your cell phone in another room or on silent.
  • Have your Bible and a notebook to record insights,
    scriptures and prayers.
  • Ask the Holy Spirit to help quiet your mind and spirit.
  • Begin by thanking God for who is—Creator, Savior, Shepherd, Provider, etc.
  • Thank Him for all the personal blessings He provides for you and your family.
  • Read a psalm or scripture passage turning it into a prayer.
  • Set a goal to pray for a short period of time—between 5-15 minutes. If you run out of things to pray about, just sit
    quietly in God’s presence.
  • Resist the urge to get sidetracked by doing just one small task, thinking you can come right back to prayer. Stay
  • As soon as a distraction interrupts your focus (something you need to do, a creative idea, etc.) write it down and dismiss it from your mind. If you find yourself focusing on a worry, doubt, fear, etc., it may be the very thing you need to bring to God in prayer.
