I am so blessed that in my beliefs, I can go straight to God with my prayers through Jesus Christ.  I can be doing anything at anytime and say prayers for thanks, requests, and praises.  Through the Holy Spirit I can also receive answers!  We so often think we must be in a holy building or place to do this.  But isn’t everywhere and everything that we know about Holy because of God?  A building or structure cannot contain God.  Only man can contain God.  Freedom is wonderful!  No matter your beliefs, exercise your prayers today and every day.  Do not overlook your freedom this week.  As we celebrate this Thanksgiving season, give your thanks for this amazing freedom.  Exercise it greatly with your freedom of prayer anywhere and anytime!


I pray in the dark of night.

My prayers go out in the light of day.

On the way to the doctor.

Coming home from the grocery.


I pray in the shower.

While I decorate with flowers.

As I wash up dishes.

And as I sweep the floor.


Prayers go up in my big soft comfy chair.

They go out as I pray on the front porch.

I pray loving on my puppies.

And with my head on my pillow as I dream of my children.


I pray over the amazing food I am given.

And for the warm water as it hits my face in the morning.

My pleas are heard at a stop light.

And in line at the department store.


My prayers fill the sky that is filled with winter stars.

I pray in the garden.

And on the church bench.

Beside the small creek under the trees.


I pray at the hospital with family.

And at the ballgame with friends,

Invocations waft out as I cap my strawberries.

And as I smell my coffee.


I pray as I gaze upon the stars.

As the sun rises,

My voice is heard by God.

During the sunny day,

I give thanks by prayer for the sun and fluffy clouds above.


At the end of the day,

My requests are made as the beauty of the sun disappears in an array of colors.

And when the dark comes upon the Earth,

I whisper my pleas to God.


When the butterflies flutter by,

They carry my prayers to God.

I pray into the eyes of the deer,

And know I am heard by God.


The birds listen to my prayers,

And chirp them to God.

I whisper my prayers to God,

And the white birch waves them into the heavens so He can hear.


I have been given the grace to come to God anywhere, anytime.

My prayers can happen anywhere, anytime.

And they are answered anywhere, anytime.

When I am praying and listening anywhere, anytime.
