  8. 8. Turn on the worship music to dance, sing, and pray – great with small children! Add a footer 8 7.WorshipfulPrayers His Inscriptions Discover Life-Giving Communication with God
  9. 9. 8.FamilyPrayers Include the children When children are too young to leave you alone, include them in your quiet times. Purchase a children's Bible or coloring pages and teach them how to have their own quiet time with you. Add a footer 9His Inscriptions
  10. 10. 9.ShowerPrayers Don’t laugh! A friend once told me this was the one private place where she could connect with God! Add a footer 10His Inscriptions
  11. 11. 10.ParkedCarPrayers In a pinch, when you need to be alone, you can escape to your car, even if it is just parked in the driveway. No one will hear you, and you're still close enough to respond to emergencies. Add a footer 11His Inscriptions
  12. 12. By far one of my favorite ways to pray, since exercising the body helps stimulate the mind as well. Pray for neighbors, family, church, whatever the Lord leads as you walk. Deborah Perkins 12 11.PrayerWalks His Inscriptions.com
  13. 13. 12.WaitingRoomPrayers Genesis 29:20 Much of life is spent waiting. I have written entire articles in the dentist's office while waiting for my children! Your time could be spent praying or reading the Bible on your phone just as easily. Be creative! Add a footer 13His Inscriptions.com
  14. 14. 13.“Trigger”Prayers Every time I see an ambulance, I pray for whomever is inside. Seeing the ambulance is a "trigger," a reminder for me to cover those who are in medical distress. You can use anything that inspires you to pray: an office building to remind you to pray for Christian businessmen, a school to remind you to pray for the safety, growth, and protection of your children.

  15. 15. 14.Middle-of-the-NightPrayers Can't sleep? Do some damage to the enemy. These quiet hours are often the best time to connect peacefully with the Lord. Pray through whatever comes to mind. (Philippians 4:6-7.) I use the nighttime hours to pray for pastors, the persecuted church, and those who might be suffering with illnesses or anxieties that keep them up at night.

  16. 16. 15.ConstantPrayer 1 Thessalonians 5:17 His Inscriptions As a Spirit-filled believer, you have an advantage: you can pray anytime, anywhere in the Spirit, even quietly, to create a sacred place.
