  1. Jody says:

    During my work-from-home week, 8AM at my home office desk. During the weeks when I’ll be in the office, 8AM in the car on the way to work.

  2. Justin says:

    6am in the den. I am the only one up this early I have been starting my day like this for 6 months now it sure does help me get my day started Prayer and my daily Devo

  3. Robert Wolfe says:

    I struggled with accomplishing this when I read the book. Having to write it down for other to see is a good incentive to be accountable. I will pray each morning before I shower.

  4. Garrett says:

    I will pray at noon everyday because these is my lunch brake at work and a time that I can have uninterrupted conversation with God, because my kids are at daycare and my wife is at work.

  5. AJ Reilly says:

    I am setting my alarm and creating a calendar invite for 2200 each night and I will pray in my office area at home.

  6. kirk kingsley says:

    I am going to schedule my prayer time for 6 AM. I am going to for opportunities during the day, that I honor God with my work, that I show love and grace to whom I interact with, praise Him for all His goodness. I hope to develop the habit of prayer pulling into my driveway after work as well. Then I want to thank God for work, ask that I be fully present for my family, and honor him with my evening.

  7. Ryan Kernan says:

    I’ve decided I’ll pray to God mid day when the sun is highest in the sky. After all it’s my understanding that God is light. So to me as a new Christian this only makes sense. I also feel as though outdoors prayer will be a great way to become closer to God so I’ve chosen to have my daily prayer along the cedar trees lining my property.

  8. Jon Carr says:

    4am weekdays and 5am weekends. I pray in my home office where it’s quite. My wife and I also pray before bed to end the day in harmony with Christ.

  9. Allan says:

    6:05am. Back patio.
    I wanted my time and place to be close/similar to Jesus’ time and place, outside before sunrise.

  10. Ken Winegarden says:

    I will pray at the beginnings of my day, usually 9am. I will pray in the spare bedroom so I can close the door & be by myself.
    I am doing a daily prayer with my wife before we get out of bed putting on the armour of God. Then I do my devotions & challenge.
    We finish the day in bed with a couples devotion & then a prayer & prayer for all our children. God Bless

  11. Ryan Volk says:

    6am-ish. With my job causing me to be up all night at times, and also get interrupted when I have prayer time at work, it becomes more sporadic. Because of this I could use some prayer from you guys for consistency. I am more consistent when I have prayer time at home the days that I don’t work.

  12. Eric P says:

    Hey men’s ministry team!
    My pray-time alarm is at 7:20am.
    Location is in the living room overlooking the lake. (In our little home we don’t really have many spots! )

  13. sandy says:

    7am. bedroom. between breakfast and getting ready to go to work. on weekends, after breakfast before the next thing that is coming up that day.

  14. David Frankel says:

    5 out of 7 days of the week I commit to praying at about 2:20 P.M. I will try to remember that time during the other 2 days.

  15. Michael J Herrera says:

    Don,

    I understand the whole praying out loud, but I find it helpful it makes me organize my thoughts and speak them it also overcomes being in a prayerful attitude.

    Mike

  16. Don Neal says:

    Hello GC Leander men’s group. This is a test comment. I prayed, and I prayed outloud. Don’t think I did 5 minutes, because I don’t prefer to be so legalistic. Its uncomfortable for me to pray out loud, by myself. I have only prayed out loud for meals with others, or small group prayer time in person. Praying out loud alone is something I don’t know if I will get used to or like. God hears my prayers whether quietly or out loud. I have been praying quietly for 50 + years, so don’t know if this old dog can change now at this stage…

  17. Don Neal says:

    I selected 6:00 a.m. at the dining room table. Its a quiet place before everyone wakes up, and I can jot down a note in my notebook of a truth learned after reading a passage of scripture.

  18. Joel says:

    Mon/Thur 8:30 at rec. center; Wed 9:30 at home; Tue/Fri/Sat 9am in ofc. at home; Sun 6:30 before church at home

  19. MIke says:

    I am praying after my daily work out during my walk around cool down around my pool. It typically happens at 5 pm. This is something new for me and I think I can do this daily.

  20. Brad says:

    In my comfy chair downstairs about 6:30 each day. The time may have to be a little earlier or later some days but that’s my target.

  21. Gary says:

    On my drive to work with the radio off. On days I don’t work it will be first thing in the morning prior to the family waking up so I have quiet time. Probably 6am.

  22. René says:

    There’s no better time than the 1st thing in the morning for me in my own home office.
    The cares of the day haven’t had time to distract me or interfere with my thoughts or disrupt my devotions. I also places my focus directly on Jesus and I’m am then able to interact with Him more easily throughout the day.

  23. Carl Nowicki II says:

    First thing after waking up in the kitchen before doing anything to give thanks, praise and gratitude before starting my day.

  24. Jason Hurd says:

    9 AM – weekdays… after I get my wife and the girls off to school… in the living room or dining room… WITH my coffee.

  25. James Echelberger says:

    Morning when I wake up. noon wherever I am at at that time. Evening again wherever I am at and bedtime before I go to bed.

  26. Chris Fleck says:

    My prayer times are at 9&3 pm. The new standard for driving is to have your hands at 9&3 on the steering wheel. It reminds me to let Jesus take the wheel in my life. We have A community room that is quiet at those times I will spend 7 minutes and 14 seconds…based on 2nd Chronicles…if my people who are called will humble themselves and pray….

  27. Gordon says:

    My prayer time will be at 12 noon Monday thru Friday in my office. 5 pm Saturday and Sunday in my bedroom. These time will get me out of my normal routine and challenge me to focus on something greater.

  28. Robert says:

    5:30 am after I exercise and before anyone else is awake in my garage so I can pray as loud as I want.

  29. Lee Vanderham says:

    7am I’m nmy home office or 630 in my car on days I commute to the office. I find comfort in starting my day with God and I’m more focused in the AM.

  30. Bob DeVries says:

    I’m going to commit to praying out loud on my drive to church each day. It takes me about 10 minutes to arrive which should be perfect.

  31. Jerry says:

    I have set 7:30 AM for my prayer time and have put it on my calendar. I’m vacillating on the place – either my upstairs office or our family room in the basement. I’m leaning toward the office is more private but it has more distractions. I’ll move if I find the distractions are too great to allow focusing on what I’m praying about.

  32. Lannes says:

    6:45 AM at the Soccer Park one block from my house, because I’ll be more comfortable praying out loud there, than inside my house so early in the morning.

  33. Terry says:

    8:45am every weekday, 9:00am every Saturday, and 1:00pm every Sunday, at my home every office every day.

  34. Kurt Cubbage says:

    2:00 am, I work 2nd shift so by the time I get home, shower, get a bite to eat I’m off to the bedroom to pray and then to sleep.

  35. David Pittman says:

    6am in my home office. Early morning is the only time that is not fraught with interruptions, since I work from home.

  36. hammesrb says:

    So I had already chosen a time and place to pray everyday but I may need to adjust somehow. I had been praying in my car on the way to and from work everyday, but now that it is the weekend i don’t have that commute time. I am trying to figure out a plan for weekends now. The kids are all up in my grill from the moment i wake up until i put them down so i may have to do my weekend prayers in the evening after i go to bed.

  37. HDL says:

    A few minutes past 8am when everyone else in my home has not waken up yet and and get some significant quiet time to pray.

  38. Onesphore says:

    In the car to work, I take 5 to 10 minutes praying. I can pray as loud as I want as I am with the LORD alone at that time.

  39. Tracy says:

    At 6 am in my bedroom when I first wake up. I can’t think of a better way to start my day and a secondary positive will be to build some discipline into my life by starting my day earlier.

  40. Jerrold Johnson says:

    6:30 am in my basement

    It 30 mins before my family gets up to get ready for school. My basement is my oasis.

  41. Cory Baron says:

    I try to always pray first thing in the morning before I even get out of bed. Great way to start the day. I also try to pray in bed before I fall asleep. Sometimes it’s just what I need to help fall asleep and quite often I fall asleep in the middle of prayer. At both times I try to say the Lord’s Prayer by the nearest window to where I’m sleeping as I travel a lot for work.

  42. Thaddeus Kennedy says:

    5am in my living room before anyone in the house is up and before I head out to work during the week.

  43. Larry Yurko says:

    I have set my prayer time to be 6:00 am daily in my home office (aka my prayer room). It offers a quite place of refuge.

  44. Phil Salet says:

    I am choosing the back deck at 7 AM because it is when nature comes alive and before I get my day started.

  45. Tyler Richardson says:

    I pray when I get in bed after work. I work nights so I get home and shower and get in bed. This prayer time allows me to get everything off my chest from the day and clear my mind. It gives me a sense of peace knowing I have just given all my thanks, worries, and requests to God. I also like to pray as soon as I wake up each day. Even if it’s just a short prayer, normally asking for God to be with me throughout my thoughts and actions during the day ahead.

    1
  46. Brad says:

    10pm before bed on my knees alone to prepare my mind for what to meditate on and 6:30am to begin the day day in service mindset

  47. Adrian says:

    Outside each day. Walk around neighborhood on weekends and when at work M-F, I will walk around outside with phone ear piece so as not to be that weird guy who talks to himself.

  48. JAMES DELGADO says:

    My Prayer location is in my garage. When its hot, I pray in the living room with my Bible open.
    I begin approx. 1200. I do my best to have a devotional daily.
    If I don’t it in the daytime, it probably won’t happen on that day…because I will get busy doing nothing.

  49. Paul Birchall says:

    I have chosen 12:00 for my prayer time. Earlier would be better but I couldn’t find a time I can do consistently.

  50. Kyle Smallcombe says:

    9 A.M. – To start my day with God by my side. Pray in my living room beside my couch. The place I’m sleeping and reading about god from. I lied to myself and told myself I would never be there.

  51. Rudy Francis says:

    6am is my prayer time and my location is in the basement of my house. During this time in the morning it’s usually quite and less distractions

  52. PABLO says:

    10am in my room because is in a corner of our room and isbvery peaceful and that’s where I do all my reading and studying

  53. Eric Amodie says:

    Eric set it for 2am I’m up early for work and just lay in bed watching tv at that time. I would be praying in my room

  54. Steve says:

    5:45 am during the work week and as soon as I wake up on the weekends. Place will be deck (weather permitting) or kitchen table.

  55. Thomas Sells says:

    645am….and in my office of bedroom….I’m a morning person and like staring my day off in prayer and reading…the location could vary based on my job! Looking forward to this challenge…good luck men!!!!

  56. Janic says:

    It’s a bit difficult for me having three young children. The house is quietest once they’re all asleep. That’s when I’ll do pray in the living room in my secret corner.

  57. Robert says:

    I tend to pray throughout the day, but 3 days a week I am up very early for work and have a 20 minutes of very quiet time for prayer and devotions. Also on my daily walk or bike ride, as Jesus is available 21/7

  58. JEREMY L KAUFFMAN says:

    So I’m a police officer and work a crazy schedule so on my work days it will be at 3am in my cruiser and off days will be at 4pm in my bedroom because no kids are allowed in my room.

  59. Jesse Skytland says:

    It’s usually right at 6:40AM daily a few minutes after waking up and just after saying the serienty prayer then I do devotionals in my bedroom . This makes for a successful day by allowing me to allow my direction to be lead the right way pointed toward the light giving me an opportunity for increased success.

  60. Mark Lyford says:

    10:30 pm, in bed
    I feel that this is a time I need to pray most, when I’m starting to unpack what’s happening in my life

  61. Joe says:

    I have my scheduled devotion and prayer time every morning at 6:15 am. I love the peace and quiet time to set read and pray to God before my day starts.

  62. David says:

    7:00 am. The time I usually get out of bed. I will spend the first ten mins of my day on my knees in prayer

  63. Zach says:

    6am. Get my butt up and pray in the morning downstairs in my office. My mind is clearest right away in the morning and my 2 year old son is not typically up yet!

  64. Jimmy says:

    8:10 AM
    Veranda of our guest house overlooking Lake Victoria. I chose this spot because I’ll start most days up here facilitating a training program

  65. Scott Van Dale says:

    My prayer time is 06:00 in the screen porch in my back yard.
    This is a peaceful place where I feel close to the Lord , and I can start my day feeling his peace.

  66. Daniel says:

    9:00PM in my dining room. Kids are asleep by then. It’s quiet and I’m almost always home at that time.

  67. Aaron Wood says:

    I am in college and so I pray in my room when I wake up and then go to sleep. Start and end the day on God’s watch.

  68. Loryn says:

    I pray multiple times a day. When I first wake up, I start my day in prayer. When I walk to and from work, I pray continually, I pray while at work to guide my words dealing with certain coworkers, patients, families.

  69. Warren M Campbell Sr says:

    I’m retired so I pray throughout the day. Alot of times early in the morning. I pray in the bedroom, living room and the dining room. Being retired prayer is whenever the Holy Spirit prompts me to pray or I just feel like talking to God.

  70. Jonathan Mark Courliss says:

    As a truck driver my schedule varies, so I am choosing 30 min before I go to sleep as my prayer time.

  71. Raphael says:

    I set up 0630 at my house when I can feel free to go though my emotions.
    I am starting for two weeks and go from there

  72. Alex says:

    12:50PM
    I work mostly mornings and I get off no later than 12:00pm. I’ll be off, home, close to my bedroom, and maybe hungry but I need to consume God’s word before I eat (Matthew 4). If it’s Sunday, church should be over and while I may not have access to my bedroom, my car can be a decent substitute

  73. Tommy says:

    My prayer time is 5:30 in the morning before anyone else is up. My living room or back patio serves as my quiet time place

  74. Tom says:

    I have prayer time every morning at 6 am alone. This is a time when no one else is around. I am however setting an alarm to have prayer at noon and evening everyday. Once a day just isn’t, enough. I am in Virginia Beach, VA.

  75. Eddie says:

    5:30AM, in my home office, it’s before anyone else is awake on any given day.
    I am a little behind this morning, but I will be more consistent after I get caught up on my chores today.

  76. Kitana Seher says:

    I am sure this blog has touched all the internet viewers, its really pleasant post on building up new web site.

  77. Grayson Mellen says:

    I have been trying to do this everyday but I just want to play after school. I am trying to catch up A.S.A.P. ! Sorry.

    1
  78. Jim Jr says:

    7 pm when I wake up and before I got to bed are consistent. I usually pray at various times throughout the day.

  79. Mark says:

    7am in the truck. My commute to work or in the office before anyone shows up are the only times I have alone.

  80. jamulwindyridge says:

    In my office .. I start in the morning when I get up usually 6:30-7:00 am .. daily devotionals and prayer..

  81. Steve says:

    Every morning after my shower (so about 6:30) in my bedroom. I would like to pray as soon as I get out of bed, but I need the shower to rouse me enough to really mentally engage.

    1
  82. Jacques Vd Merwe says:

    Every day at 7:30 till 8:00 & 21:00 till 21:30. My living room, lots of sunlight, I feel most comfortable there.
    I want to start my day with God and end my day with God.

  83. Tom says:

    My prayer time is first thing in the morning before I get distracted by the “outside” world. I find peace and closeness with god

  84. John says:

    I’m starting to get it now. Wish I was onboard from day 1 because I am really 3 or 4 days behind everyone else. Don’t know how to catch up. Its ok. I will be praying at 9 or 9:30 pm in bedroom. Great name Dan!

  85. Tony says:

    My prayer time will be at 6am each morning in my bedroom. The reason I’m choosing this time and location is because I want my first interaction of the day to be the Lord, talking and listening to what He has for my day.

  86. Kurt Cubbage says:

    High noon, because that’s when I take my heart medication (a good way to remember to thank God for another day He has given me)

  87. Marc says:

    I chose 5am because it is a good time in the morning when I am awake. I chose our living room because it is the only place in our home where I can accomplish being alone without waking up my wife.

  88. Scott Kelly says:

    My schedule is so complicated with church, work and family it s hard to find a single time and place to commit to. I know that sounds like “I don’t have time to talk to God” And I can’t believe I sound like that to be honest. I usually just pray throughout the day and on the way in to work but weekends get mixed up because I have no routine. But I am nervous because I want this to work and if I choose a time during the day I will be at work, then what about the weekends? I am also afraid that if choose early in the morning and I am too tired or running late then the time won’t be quality. So I ask myself am going committed to this or not? Do I truly want to grow my relationship with God? Yes, I am and I do. God has done everything for me and I can surely set a specific time to talk with Him. So my prayer time will be 4:00 am in my bedroom.

    • Michael Sirignano says:

      Monday through Friday at 6:30am in my van during my 45 minute drive to work
      Saturday and Sunday at 7:30 am in the prayer room in my house.

      I pray in my work van because it is a sanctuary for me. It is early in the morning when God’s mercies are new, and I can confess and ask for forgiveness

  89. Steven Johnston says:

    I pray when I first get up and before bed for at least 10 to 15 minutes. I choose my living room since no one is up or around at the appointed times

  90. TRACY Allen STEIN says:

    I have a one hour commute to my job. I like to do my prayers then. Helps me start my day out right.

  91. Ted says:

    So, I couldn’t get to the challenge until now.
    I am setting 6am as my time and my kitchen as the place.
    I think this is the only time I can be in the same place.

    Ted

  92. Gordon says:

    Prayer Time: 7:30 a.m. (later on Saturday) in a private room because it’s free from distractions. Bible study in my car, while waiting for it to warm up on weekday mornings. More extensive Bible study on weekends at my desk because it has a computer with access to Bible versions and online research.

  93. Isaac says:

    I scheduled my prayer for 6:00 am in my home office, that’s before my wife and some get up so it’s quiet in the house and it’s before the day starts.

  94. Scott Halverson says:

    You’ll find this strange but I sit on the commode every morning and use that time as my prayer/devotional place. It’s the downstairs commode away from the family and a quiet part of the home.

  95. Paul Leininger says:

    I pray every morning early in my front room. My family is not up yet and there are no distractions. It is where I can look outside as well to take in God’s creation.

  96. Anthony Gjorvad says:

    In my home office at 5:30am before starting my day. This is the best time for me to have some uninterrupted time for myself.

  97. Tony says:

    5am or 1pm. In my car. I have an hour drive to work each day and it’s a good quite place to talk to God about the day ahead.

  98. Will says:

    I will plan for 6a on workdays and 8a on weekends. We have a couch in our bedroom that is a good place to sit and pray.

    • Nathan Nourse says:

      I plan on praying each night around 10 pm. This way Sarena and I can pray together if she is feeling well enough or I will go into the basement and pray alone if she is not feeling well enough, or already asleep. The biggest distractions are my kids and a new puppy. By 10 the puppy and the kids will all be asleep. The time and place will stay the same for weekends.

  99. Hugh Prichard says:

    I will pray at 6:00 each morning in a spare room in the house. It is a quiet place that I don’t usually pray in.

  100. TJ says:

    Times: upon rising (approx. 5am) and prior to going to bed (approx. 11 pm) in my room, approx. 9:30 am during break time.

  101. Brett Haugen says:

    I plan to pray at my desk at home after I feed the dogs in the morning. My morning schedule varies from day to day, but the routine is consistent.

  102. Ron says:

    6:30 AM ET in my family room where it is quiet before anyone else wakes up. It starts the day off on the right foot.

    • Shane Young says:

      6.00am weekdays before work 7.00am weekends before chores start. On our back deck when all is quiet.

  103. Tyler Penner says:

    Location varies because of my occupation, but I chose 10:30AM in my semi wherever I happen to be that day.

  104. tim says:

    As have for past continue during to do daily morning walk and prayer time after first get up, good for the body, good for the soul.

  105. Kevin Allex says:

    I normally pray in the morning before work and throughout the day, which I’m still going to do, but I’m setting the alarm for 10pm and going in the workout room. Then I can make time to reflect and pray about the day.

  106. Phil mickelson says:

    5:30 am
    The house is still. No one distracts me other then a couple brothers in Christ doing the same as I am.

    • Jon says:

      It’s different everyday. Within the first hour of waking up and right before bed. I talk to God all day long as well if I have questions or am working on something specific.

  107. Mike says:

    6:15 after a workout, on the couch drinking coffee. I gotta get it in while im more awake after a workout and before the kids are awake.

    • John Koch says:

      That is an awesome routine. Working out is one of the hardest things for me to do, but I really like your idea of knocking it out before quiet time ⚡⚡⚡

  108. Michael Pechar says:

    10pm in my bedroom. This will also work with my travel schedule as I’ll always be back in my room by 10pm

  109. Dan says:

    My time is between 5:30 and 6:00 AM. I pray at my kitchen table while enjoying a cup of coffee before heading to work. This is my alone time and works best for me.

  110. Matt Robinson says:

    Monday through Wednesday, and Saturday: 10:00 am at my home office desk. The Verse of the Day email from YouVersion has served as my “alarm” to remind me to pray.
    Thursdays and Fridays: 7:45 am in my car as I drive into the main office.
    Sunday: 7:30 am at my desk prior to leaving for church.

    After I wake up in the mornings. It’s a peaceful time without any distractions and a time I can reflect and talk to God alone.

  116. Chad Husted says:

    I already have a morning routine with devo time and journaling my prayers. i can do better at just sitting quietly after this exercise to focus on prayer.

  117. Curt says:

    M-F 7:30 in my office at my desk with a big east facing window – before anyone else arrives.
    S-S 7:30 in my living room with a big west facing window on to a wetland – before anyone else is awake.

    11:00 PM at night is my routine prayer and reflection time in my bedroom. I also have a prayer time at 11:50 AM before our staff lunch this is usually after I have prepared for staff reviews and follow ups and our teams bible study once a week as well.

  120. Chris says:

    Chris from Cuse
    3 :30 pm on my way home from work because it presents a consistent time with minimal opportunity for distractions.

  121. Tom Klingbeil says:

    M-F 5:30 am, SS 7:30 am. Basement Family Room. It is a quiet time and a quiet location. I can pray and journal my prayers. I can pray for my “oikos” or family circle. Often, I get too distracted with my daily wants, needs, and immediate concerns. This will give me an opportunity to pray specifically for others by name.

  122. Jonathan says:

    Unlike Ryan, my auto-pilot driving skills NEVER distract me from prayer. 🙂
    I’m a very distracted pray-er. The car is actually where I experience the least mental distractions.
    Planning on 8:45am in the car for workdays/basement for offdays.

  123. Sean F. Smillie says:

    6 am in my living room. It is quiet and No distractions since my wife and kids are still sleeping.

  124. Ben Smith says:

    I am going to plan on a 10:30pm timeline. Gracie is usually in bed by then and I should not have any reasons or distractions from keeping me from doing it.

  125. DC says:

    My time will be in the morning from 5:00am – 5:30am before I head out for the day. I have an area on my rug that I will use as my Prayer Zone.

  126. Gavin Johnson says:

    I’m choosing 9:30 PM in my living room. Life’s distractions will be few and will give me time to reflect on the day and pray for the future ahead.

  127. Cory bullock says:

    11am
    My morning always starts off so busy. It’s a good middle of day time that helps me reset from all the worldly distractions that may already be effecting my walk for the day.

  128. Ron says:

    11:30 PM At the Living Room couch, not on the couch. I’m a late person and alone at that time. I can review the prayer requests from the email list for the day and include them. Of course as needed through the day, where ever when ever.

  129. Justin K. says:

    Normally, I wake up and begin to pray for my day, my week, etc. I always have to give thanks to him for allowing me to see another day. Aside from this prayer time, I want to devote a certain amount of time each day to ensure that my God receives the time and praise he deserves. I’ll be challenging myself to do that over the next 35 days!

    • Terance Roberson says:

      Definitely accepting to challenge to devote specific time just to pray and have a conversation with God everyday.

  130. Jonathan Lewis says:

    I’m setting my prayer alarm to 5:00am to kick start my day!!! I’m truly convinced that prayer works and that this consistency will help me grow while connecting with my Heavenly Father.

  131. Terance Roberson says:

    Between 9:00 & 10:00, I always find myself talking to God & praying while on my way to work or while sitting in the office before starting the work day.

  132. Mike says:

    12:30 PM while on my lunch sometimes in the break room at work and sometimes in my car. I find that taking my lunch in my car allows for a quiet spot and no interruptions.

  133. Ryan Wissink says:

    I’m going to try to make my prayer time at 7 or 7:15AM in my office — it’s generally pretty quiet there at that point as not many people are in yet, and I can close the door to have a good private quiet time. The only challenges will be a) getting up and out the door in time; and b) not allowing myself to be distracted by the work day ahead. I considered designating my drive time in the morning as my prayer time, but I struggle to stay as focused on prayer then as I’m distracted by actually driving! On the weekends, I’ll plan for 7:30 in the living room.

    • Tim says:

      Yeah, in the car in the morning is probably my best time so I’m planning for that. No worries on distracted driving here either .

      Weekends, I’m thinking in the bathroom around 8am, cause honestly that’s probably the only quiet place we can get right now for real haha. Josie’s up and will be a distraction by like 7.

  134. Michael Swalley says:

    I will be praying at 5:30 am, in my living room. Like John said, I want to incorporate more movement and even singing in my prayer life. This time and space give me the freedom to do that.

    • John Koch says:

      Swalley, you just took it up a level! Singing is a great idea. Often I just whisper, but I think signing and praying out loud might really embolden us to take on the day.

  135. Terry says:

    Home office, daily at 6:30 am. It’s the place I can have to myself in the house and a time I will need to plan around to keep. Once school is back in, I typically leave by 7:15 to drop my son, so it will fit in the middle of my prep time.

  136. Ian says:

    I think the best time for me is early morning between 8 and 9:00 a.m. when I 1st get up. It’s the quietest time of the day and I have time to relax and reflect for the prayer time. I generally like to do it in my living Room where there’s no distractions are it’s quiet.

  137. Jeff says:

    6:30 a.m. each morning in my F-150 on my way to work. It is quiet, peaceful and I’m never interrupted. Been doing F150 time for years and it works well for me.

  138. James O'Brien says:

    9:00pm as usually the kids are asleep and quiet enough to break away to find a place in the house such as the kitchen table.

  139. Jose says:

    Always in the am before work. I have this comfy rocking chair one that brings me to a sense of tranquility and calm.

  140. Dave Benson says:

    Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.
    Mark 1:35
    I know for me I’m not consistent in my prayer time. I’m going to start rising early and finding a solitary place to pray without distractions. Even the coffee will have to wait!

  141. Joe D. says:

    For years, I’ve had an alarm set at 10:30am. By then, I usually know what challenges are coming for the day.

    I go to my car (not driving, and no radio), just sitting….God and me.

  142. Mike L says:

    In the morning around 9 am. In my bedroom. I kneel on the floor at the foot of my bed and pray. Then do my daily exercises. I also pray when I get in bed to go to sleep at night.

  143. Kent Schmid says:

    7:00 am in my car on my way to work. It’s good, quiet, alone time where I can gather my thoughts and spend quiet time with God.
    All in!

  144. Mike Johnson says:

    5 AM. In my basement. This is the quietest place and time in our house. With four young kids and a business, my days are often pretty chaotic and unpredictable. To be consistent and successful I need to workout and do devotional first thing in the morning.

  145. Paul says:

    7:00 am on the bus to work (Noise canceling headphones for the win!) or in my house while the kids are still asleep

  146. Derek Blumberg says:

    I will be praying at 8:00AM each morning during my devotion time in my living room, or my truck, or my boat or wherever I may be at that time each day. My schedule varies. This is typically when I pray. I also pray Spontaneously whenever a situation arises or when I am prompted by the Lord throughout my day.

  147. Phillip Van Gorp says:

    It will be 7:00-7:30am. I go to the gym at 4:45 then come home and read for 30 min. I will pray in the basement, in the guest bedroom where no one will bother me.

  148. Patrick Clements says:

    Prayer Time: As I make the bed … why? It’s a reminder that every morning, our GREAT Lord “resets” my life. He does it every day. It’s called grace.

    Then again as I get into bed. I talk to Him about my messy day.

    The next morning … I’m “reset” by HIS reckless love.

    • Faron says:

      I pray everyday as soon as I wake up,while I am still in bed I start to talk to God and then I will start my day

  149. Sam Harrison says:

    Each morning before I read my daily DEVO & devotional
    And each night at 11: PM on my knees next to my bed
    And thru out the day becaus I need help alll day long

  150. Matt says:

    In in the morning before I even get out of bed. Then again on my way to school to pray over His agenda for the day.

  151. Squirrel says:

    0600 Sat & Sun as it’s quiet and I can rest in God’s arms in prayer.

    12:00 noon Mon-Fri I will do a prayer walk to (a) get up & out (b) see God’s beauty where I am (c) be intentional about bringing God to those I am with that day. Good reminder for me that my time with God isnt only at Church or a “safe” place but where I am, everywhere I am.

  152. Kevin says:

    0430 am. This is the quietest time of my day. It is right before my work out. In my exercise room. This time of prayer is time to listen for God to talk with me and also time for my body to totally relax before my workout.

  153. Eric Ludovico says:

    7:30 am. for 35 day challenge
    5:30 am after that to return to my normal scheduled program.
    1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 “Rejoice Always, Pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
