A Family Prayer Center

prayer centerBesides the lesson on Angels, there were a few other things in your September Home Lesson packet, and today I want to mention the little yellow brochure entitled Creating Your Family’s Prayer Center.

The brochure says it all in a concise way, but if you want to read more about setting up a prayer center, I’ve written about it several times.  (Here, here, here, and here, among others.)

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:

prayer table

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!
