ĎThere is such a thing as a prayer place and many people are very aware of that in their lives. Itís a place where I can get away from it all.í ~Jack McArdle
We sometimes think that prayer must be confined just to a church. Anywhere else seems out of place. But we can simply pray anywhere that works for us. That can be in our kitchen, a bedroom, a favourite armchair, a favourite walk through a forest, along a seashore or even working in our garden. The choice is ours and there is great freedom in finding that place that works for each of us. It mightnít work for someone else but if it works for you then that prayer place is your sacred place. Itís a place where we can simply get away from it all. Itís a place where we can recharge, renew and reflect on the blessings in our own lives. Itís a place where we can pray to God and share whatever is going on in our lives. This coming Wednesday we begin our journey through Lent. It could be a good time to re-find that place in your life where you can connect with God in the way that works best for you.
