    That is so awesome that you have inspired your kids to have their own prayer spaces. For the longest, I felt that I could just pray anywhere and it was all the same. Yet, although we can pray anywhere and at any time, having a special place to be free from distraction and to be completely open to God it so important. I have a prayer corner in our basement playroom that I go to early in the morning while everyone is still sleeping and I love it!

      Ayanna, that’s so true. Anytime, anywhere! But having a special place where you can say “God, I’m here” and really be able to focus is vital. Oh, and I was so moved when I seen them making their own spaces! I love that you have one for yourself too.

      Thanks Lisa, I got the idea from the movie War Room, then seen what some other women were doing on Pinterest (of course).

    How neat that your kids wanted their own prayer room too! I haven’t done anything special to my closet, but when I just need to cry out to God, I bring a pillow and some kleenex into my closet and just pray!

    I love your description of your prayer room. I feel that my room in my sanctuary. It is my place to feel peace and be uplifted by the spirit. I think any place where we are striving to commune with God becomes a special sanctuary. Thanks for the post.

      Lori, you’re right! Any place where we go to get away, be alone and meet with God is a very special place. Glad to hear you have a place…I think we all need one, life gets so busy!

    I love this! I want to create a prayer area but I haven’t been able to find an area with enough space to designate as my prayer area

    I believe having a special and unique place where you can say ¨Hi, God…it´s me again¨ is amazing. Group prayer isn´t really my thing either, so I really cherish those one-on-one moments with my heavenly Father. I don´t have space for a prayer room right now so instead, I go out for a long walk in the woods where I live (don´t worry, it´s completely safe) and since I´m alone there, I kinda feel like the whole area is just for me and God. I really loved reading this post, thanks for sharing it!

      Andrea, the first thing I thought was “ooh, I love to be in nature with God” an the second thing was “Crazy people hang in the woods too” HAHA! That’s too funny we both thought that.But I get it, it’s like stepping into Gods territory, kinda like Eden. Anyplace we meet with Him is a good place.

    I love this, Jen!! It’s funny that you mention the crying during worship. That happens to me in the car when I’m worshipping and my kids used to look at me like “What is wrong with you???” I finally had to explain to them that different emotions rise up when I’m worshipping God and that sometimes those are happy tears. Even with the explanation, I can still tend to want to hold back. I love your idea of a prayer closet. I’ve been needing to do this for awhile. Your post has inspired me! Thanks for sharing at Salt & Light today!

      HA! That “what’s wrong with you” look is familiar to me! I tried explaining too, but I still catch them looking out the sides of their eyes when certain song come on. I’m so humbled that this post could inspire you. I truly hope you find a space for just you and the Lord. Mine has been such a blessing to me.

    After I watched the movie “The War Room,” I really wanted to make a prayer room too. The problem is, we have no walk-in closets and the thought of cramming myself into one of our closets isn’t exactly appealing. However, I have different prayer rooms. I like to prayer in my bedroom, when I’m going for a walk, or when I’m driving alone. Hopefully, I too, am being changed when I pray.

      Rosanna, I’ve used empty offices, running trails, pretty much anyplace where I can find a quiet moment. Our conversation with God is what makes the place special. I nice quiet room works perfectly.
