Prayer is the cornerstone of a life of discipleship, of following Jesus. The Psalms encourage us to pray as many as seven times a day, but we have many choices as to when or how to pray. Some people pray before meals, while others pray to begin and end their day. Some "pray where they are," while others benefit from a dedicated space or environment.
