    How much time do you spend in The Word and prayer?

    I find as my personal relationship with the Lord grows stronger I am drawn more and more to Scripture and prayer. I have a hunger for the Word I cannot quench. I spend an hour a night in prayer as I listen to Gospel or Christian music before bed. Find myself praying in the car, shower, etc. Just wondering how much time others spend in this area.

    Great question and it's cool how you long to stay in contact with your Savior.  Currently I spend about ten minutes every morning listening to an audio of Scripture available on the ESV website.  I then prime my prayer pump with a Scotty Smith prayer available on his website. He'll send you one every day at no charge. Then the rest of the day is a constant dialogue with the Lord.  I'm aware of his presence, much like I'm aware of my wife. We're not always talking to each other, but we're almost aways aware of each other.

    I've long been persuaded that women have much to teach us, men, about intimacy with Jesus. I, as a redblooded American heterosexual male, have a hard time feeling intimate with Jesus. Yet the Scriptures describe us all as his bride.  Go figure.

    I actually did a Bible Study on my own for single women called "Lady in Waiting". Basically, you read the book, do the study guide and spend a lot of time in meditation and journaling. It is for women who are waiting on the man the Lord has chosen for them. You focus the time and energy you would give to a boyfriend to learning about Jesus and becoming closer to him. I even began attending church on Saturdays, "date night". I had one chapter left in the study when i  met my boyfriend who is also a born again Christian who loves God as I do and is strong in the Lord. I had to completely surrender myself and my life, giving them to the Lord when I really developed the deep intimacy I now have with Him. It is a daily walk. I use to find excuses as why not to go to church or church functions. Now I schedule my life around them. I also am a member of a worship team that uses sign language and body movement/dance to worship to songs. In fact, tonight we are visiting a church that has requested we come and minister during a Gospel Jamboree. The closeness while you are mouthing the words to the song and signing to the Lord is so amazing and awesome. I can just feel His presence! Stay cemented in faith!

    I haven't spent time praying since I was rather young. I have spent quite a bit of time reading scripture though. It hasn't necessarily been daily, but  I have studied the bible, among other texts, a fair bit. Over time, the more I've read, the more I've found it to be rather distasteful.

    Though to clarify, I'm not trying to offend, just answering the question.

    I like your question though I don't really have a set answer for it. lol

    I belong to an apologetic site so I tend to spend many hours studying scripture.I do usually spend any where between 30 minutes to a couple of hours alone reading my bible everyday aside from the apologetic studies.

    It is actually kind of hard to put a time on everything as I spend all day with God.It is a relationship.When you are in a relationship you don't just talk to the person for 30 minutes and then not talk to them any more for the rest of the day.
    I spend time alone in prayer every day but I still talk to God throughout the day.I sing songs to Him,praise Him and thank Him.I may remember something else I want to pray about while I'm washing dishes and then pray about it.So it is an all day,ongoing relationship without a time limit.

    We are to abide in Him!

    John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
    6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
    7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
    8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
