If you do not go to church, do you pray at home?

    Seems not many of you are not enthusiastic about organized religon. Do some of you pray at home then?

      Yes.  Prayer for me is being in a continuous place of conversing with and listening to the Lord throughout my day.  I am in a relationship with Him so not doing so isn't an option.  I want to know what He has to say about the things that concern me but I also want to know what His thoughts are and what He desires from me.  I start my day with Him, I talk with Him throughout my day and I end my day with Him.  If I only talked to Him when I was at church or in corporate prayer, what would be the point of being in relationship with Him?

    I pray all the time at  home. I talk to God in my head. Anywhere you are God is there and is always listening. I do go to church on occasions but I haven't been in a long time. I do need to get back in going again.

      Well said. I talk to God and pray all the time.  Starting in the morning when I read my bible and carrying on throughout the day.
      I find it funny that some people think the only place Christians talk to God is in a designated building. Just as well this isn't the case. 
      I personally don't get to church as often as I would like because of my arthritis which makes getting up, getting out and then sitting in church problematical.

    It would be a waste of time for me, as apparently Sir Dent is the only one here that the big guy talks to! sad

    Besides, I see no reason to talk to or interupt those engaged in private conversations yikes

    I used to attend my local church regularly, as well as sing in the choir, which I loved. Since  have been ill, I am not able to go there anymore, and I have been receiving Holy Communion from one of the Parishioners from my Church. I pray each morning and night and read my bible as well. We were taught at school when I was younger that God is everywhere, he is all around you. I know that he is listening to me when I pray, and he will hear my daily prayer when I ask him for his help to get me through each day and I know that he has heard me when I wake again next morning, to face another day.  Beautybabe

    If I am sick, I cannot attend the Sunday church service.  I usually listen to Worship.net or other TV shows that features special sermons.  My family prays together everyday.  It guides us in our daily activities.

    Have a great week!

    The children of God should not thinking  about putting aside special time to pray but  would see every situation as an opportunity for communion with God.
    And the particular situation determines the what is nature of the type of prayer for prayer takes many differing forms.

    The common organised religion type of pray is usually vain and offered to a the God  of deceit.

    why do we go to restaurants when we can eat at home.  Because we choose to.  Just a choice.  Personally I don't go our to either but that's just me big_smile

            "Have you stopped beating your wife yet? assumes that the person is a wife beater.
            The question here assumes one prays, same trick different twist! lol

                    My journey has been different. I have lived my life with my heart too, always doing what I loved to do and following my heart felt feelings. I had a time when I believed, but study took me in a different direction to you. smile
