I’ve been trying to get back into praying more meaningfully and regularly. Baby & I say prayers morning & evening, but it’s not the same thing when she’s crawling all over the bed/floor/me. I think I need some divine inspiration in my life, and some inner peace, I know this is a clear path to get some.
I’m starting to use driving time to/from work for prayer. When baby is not enjoying the ride (and even when she is) I sing prayers for her, mainly the Remover of Difficulties. I say a longer one driving to/from my parents’ and work.
When I was single I prayed in the car a lot more. To and from work, and the first stretch of a road trip was breathing, prayers, affirmations. It was incredibly rejuvenating. In the 8 months before I met my husband I was praying particularly intensively and the car was a big part of that process. The prayers were also a big part clarifying who I wanted to find. Funny, since meeting him my car praying has declined. I’d like to get back into it.
I think I also want to have prayers in our home. Maybe a mom-baby prayer gathering on alternate Fridays? I don’t know yet, but it’s something important to me spiritually, for building community and nurturing friendships. Who would come? I have no idea. I’m just starting with the vision.
