Is There a Proper Place to Pray?

You can pray to God at any time, day or night. God never sleeps and is always available (Psalm 121:3). His ears are always open to the righteous, and He hears their prayers (1 Peter 3:12). But do you ever wonder, “Is there a correct or proper place to pray?”

True believers with clean hearts can approach God anywhere with their prayers. This was true in both Old Testament and New Testament times. For example,

  • King David prayed in a cave (Psalm 57).
  • The Israelites prayed in the wilderness (1 Kings 8:33-34, 47-49).
  • Elijah prayed in an upper room in a house (1 Kings 17:20).
  • Daniel prayed in his personal chamber (Daniel 2:19).
  • Sailors prayed in their boat (Jonah 1:13-14).
  • Peter prayed on a housetop (Acts 10:9).
  • Lydia and a group of women prayed by the riverside (Acts 16:13).
  • Paul and Silas prayed in stocks in a prison (Acts 16:25).
  • Paul and the disciples at Tyre prayed on the beach (Acts 21:5).

God’s people are to pray everywhere (1 Timothy 2:8). And that includes you! You can pray from any place, at any time.
