If you want to read quite a bit more, I recommend a new book on the topic called The Little Oratory: A Beginner’s Guide to Praying in the Home by Leila Lawler and David Clayton. It goes through lots of details on how and why to pray in the home.
Even if you aren’t interested in the reading, you may like to see pictures of other prayer tables. If so, Leila blogs at Like Mother, Like Daughter and part of her Little Oratory Project is inviting readers to share pictures of the prayer tables in their own homes.
Finally, a little local inspiration shared by a Family Formation family from the Church of Saint Paul:
I was going through pictures and found this one. I wanted to send it to you…it’s our prayer table corner. At some point, after teaching a Family Formation class, [my husband] came home with the list of all of the popes. We hung it on our wall and it’s been there ever since. When people come to our home, it usually always grabs people’s attention and starts some great conversation!
