    So, I don't know if any of you do this, but I always have good prayer time when I shower, so I taped my most common prayer requests on the shower wall.

    Using a waterproof and steam-proof tape, I presume. Heh.

    Just a page protector and scotch tape is doing the trick. ;)

    I prefer an armchair.

    Not me. They take up a lot of room and they get all wet when you keep them in the shower with you.

    For some reason I now have the song, Showers Of Blessing, stuck in my head.

    I remember that song from my early Assemblies of God days. I can hear it now. Sometimes I feel the same way about the "Mercy-drops" falling, But for the showers, we plead.

    There shall be showers of blessing:
    This is the promise of love;
    There shall be seasons refreshing,
    Sent from the Savior above.
    Showers of blessing,
    Showers of blessing we need;
    Mercy-drops round us are falling,
    But for the showers we plead.​

    There's lots more, but you get the point.

    BTW - Mary and I were in the AG church for maybe a year until the pastor loaned me Spurgeon's - Lectures to My Students. What on earth was he thinking? It took me about two weeks with Spurgeon to make a Calvinist out of me. Then my wife discovered the Westminster Confession of Faith – Well that did it. We were on our way and never looked back.

    Long prayer list + small hot water heater = short prayer per person/event/etc!

    My reaction was - long list, lots of water being wasted. Not good stewardship of resources.

    Of course, we are both making assumptions as to how Ryan showers...

    True story: after six decades of marriage, my retired, career-Marine father mentioned, a bit proudly, in a family gathering that he and my mother took "Navy showers," where the water was only running for a few minutes (to get wet initially, and then to rinse off). This is what he learned to do early in his service aboard a Med cruise in the 50's.

    My mother quickly rebutted that notion - and, to my father's astonishment, said that she had, rather, always enjoyed long, hot showers. She wasn't stationed on a ship, after all!

    So, one could conceivably take a Navy shower and pray - at length - in between turning on the water (though it might be a bit cold and uncomfortable to do so!).

    My favorite prayer spot is the deck on the back of my house under the trees. It where I like to read my bible too.
