What do I do each morning, in the first hour of my day? I usually read a biblical passage and reflect on it for a while. I pray the rosary and meditate on its mysteries. Sometimes I simply sit in the quiet and peace of the Lord’s presence. And at times I fall asleep for a few moments!
There is no one particular hour each day that best suits everyone. The idea is to find the best hour — the one that fits your lifestyle, so that if you skip it you will miss it.
Similarly, there is no particular place for prayer that best suits everyone. Some like to pray in the privacy of their home or apartment. Others prefer to pray outdoors. Still others opt for the prayerful environment of their parish church.
The important thing is to pray each day. If you begin to set aside a definite time for prayer each day during Lent, you soon learn that it influences the rest of your day. And you will want to continue that habit of prayer every day throughout the year.
