They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
Do you have a special place in your home set aside for Bible/devotional reading and prayer?
I do. That is until my son moves in with us last year, and is given the spare bedroom where I've set up shop. Do I miss it? Definitely! I so like having a dedicated space for home worship and study.
But I work it out. Sometimes, I'm at our dining room table. Other days, weather permitting, I sit on our back deck, a delightful venue where I'm surrounded by forest and bird songs.
Still. It's not quite the same . . .
It isn't until I decide several weeks ago to stand, instead of sit, at my computer desk, that I'm given a revelation. In looking for spot in our living room to stash the chair, an underutilized corner catches my eye. The space is too small for an armchair or rocker, but it's the perfect fit for this chair!
And the window seats provide the means to set up what I now call my Prayer Corner. No, it's not fancy, but everything I need to spend quiet time with God is here.

And a whole host of gentle reminders that the Lord is near.

And of course, my Walk to Emmaus rooster!
How I love my new Prayer Corner!
And I hope, if you don't have a devoted area in your home for daily communion with God, that you will consider creating one.
If you do have a spot already set aside, I hope you will describe, in the comments section, the sanctuary you've created as an inspiration to others.
May God bless and keep you all!
