Once you’ve identified the ideal time for prayer You can begin to establish a routine. Here’s an illustration of a typical daily routine for morning prayer:
Begin by addressing God, ask for his help while you read and pray.
Take a chapter from the Bible and reflect on it. This can be accomplished by reading it three to four times, or writing down everything it reveals about yourself, or examples to follow, commands to obey , or promises to keep.
Structure your prayer by making confession, adoration, petition, and thanksgiving. Pray for your immediate needs and worries, and take time to be in God’s presence.

It’s important that you make this a consistent part of your routine. If you don’t make it through the occasional day or two Don’t be concerned! Get back on track for the next day.
A daily prayer practice is a wonderful method to begin your new year off with a fresh feeling of purpose and connection with the divine. It’s a powerful method to start your day, keeping your eyes to the Lord and making sure that your actions and thoughts are aligned in accordance with His plan.
Another way to increase your prayer time is to create a more interactive. Instead of just reciting words, you should try to connect with God in a deeper way. Use your imagination and try to picture the scenes described in the Bible. Try to feel the emotions of the characters, and put yourself in their the shoes of their characters. This can make your time in prayer more personal and meaningful.
