When drawing close to God through fasting and prayer, sometimes it is helpful to change our scenery. While this is not always possible, opportunities to go to a new or special place to pray can motivate your heart.
Here are some ideas:
-take a walk outside (weather permitting)
-create a special space for prayer in your home (a prayer closet)
-drive to a park or scenic location and pray in your car
-go to a place of worship (like the LWA sanctuary)
I want to focus this morning on the last idea- going to a place of worship. Office hours at LWA are 9am-4pm, M-F. You are more than welcome to come pray in the sanctuary during the day. Those of you that work could consider fasting from lunch occasionally and spending your lunch break praying in the sanctuary instead of eating.
A change of scenery can break your normal routine and prep your heart for a fresh encounter with God through prayer! Try it out!
