Once you’ve determined the best time for prayer You can begin to build your routine. Here’s an example of a daily pattern for morning prayer:
Begin by approaching God to ask for his blessing while you read and pray.
Go through a section of the Bible and then meditate on the passage. It can be done by reading it three to four times, or listing everything it reveals about yourself, the examples you can follow, instructions to obey or promises to claim.
Your prayer should be structured by offering adoration, confession, petition, and thanksgiving. Pray for your needs and pressing concerns and then take time to enjoy God’s presence.
The beauty of praying is that it is customizable to suit your needs. Many people might only have some minutes while others might have a half an time or even more. The key is that you make this a regular element of your day-to-day routine. If you fall off a day or two do not fret! Get back on track the next day.

Another way to increase your prayer time is to enhance it by making it more interactive. Instead of reciting the words, try to engage with God in a deeper way. Make use of your imagination and try to imagine the scenes that are described by the Bible. Try to feel the emotions of the characters and put yourself in their the shoes of their characters. This will make your prayer time more meaningful and personal.
Try incorporating different types of prayer into your routine. For example, try a silent prayer, contemplative prayer, or even journaling your prayers. This will prevent your prayer practice from becoming repetitive and provide some variety to your daily spiritual routine.
