Praying by the Poolside


feet at pool

I am a pool person. Those that know me well know that I can be found at my pool a lot during the summer. I love to sit and read or swim a few laps. I just love being there. I don’t mind the noise of little kids nor do I mind the quiet of adults; I just love to be there.
The only other thing that I love more is communing with God. I usually do this with my writing and my quiet time first thing in the morning, but now I’ve incorporated another way to commune with my heavenly Father; praying by the poolside.
I did just that yesterday; sat at my poolside for about an hour; stretching, swimming and communing with God.

God’s Word does NOT tell us when and where we are to pray; God’s Word tells us to pray at all times.

Ephesians 6: 18 tells us to pray at all times in the Spirit with every prayer and request, and stay alert in this with all perseverance and intercession for all the Saints. HCSB…The Spirit of the Lord is wherever you go.

Psalm 6:9 The Lord has heard my plan for help; the LORD accepts my prayer. HCSB Even at the pool? Yes, again, the Spirit of the Lord is wherever you go.

Have you found any new ways in which you pray? I would love to hear from you.
