For myself, since I am currently the only practicing Catholic in my home (still working on and praying about that!), I have a bookshelf that has a drop-down desk panel. In this area, I keep: candles, both real and electric; a picture of Our Lady of Guadalupe, framed; a matted photo of St Therese; A novena booklet and set of beads for my patron saint, St Dymphna; my Bibles (both a Catholic version and "The Message", an easy to read translation), an angel statue; another framed photo of the Blessed Mother; a book that describes each day's saint; the Pope's prayer intentions for each month; a list of local seminarians to pray for; and my rosary.
Making time to pray can be difficult, but by golly, if mom's with 7 kids and more can make time to do so, so can I. Anything less is just wrong--how can we possibly say to our creator, "I have no time for you"?

SO--when do you pray? Do you follow a set pattern? Do you have a special prayer place, and what do you keep in it?
