As the sun comes up, the air is cool, sometimes even crisp as the steam rises from a fresh cup of coffee. It is a perfect time of day for meditation and quiet. It’s a perfect time for scripture or books of prayer. Many people don’t think of how to make their backyard a perfect retreat place that you can go to any morning you choose.

For some, there is no better way to hear the voice of God than to listen to the early morning. As you sit there in the quiet of a day that has not really started it s a wonderful way to get close to God and got get a great perspective  and set the day on a good tone. One way to make your yard more conducive is to work on putting a prayer garden.

A good pray garden starts with a trip to your local nursery to find what types of items you want to put into your prayer garden. Roses are often  a popular staple  for a prayer garden. Commonly white and red are often chosen because they are colors tied to the church and in May the color of Roses for the crown of the Blessed Mother. White roses are often a little tougher to grow, so unless you have a green thumb and have experience with roses, pink are usually are heartier breeds of roses.

Morning glories are another great choice for a prayer garden. They bloom in the early morning with beautiful trumpeted flowers make for a beautiful back drop with the mix of color and the green. It also makes a great backdrop for statuary. Popular garden statues are a great way to create a more prayerful area of your yard.

You may decide on the statue first because it may dictate how you fill in your garden. You may opt for a resin Blessed Mother statue that is painted or just an unpainted one. Some have a more weathered appearance. Depending on the base of your statue you may need a small cement slab to help keep the statue from tipping or you can permanently affix the statue to the ground by placing it in wet cement that will help set it. You can from there cover the statue with mulch or dirt to plant flowers at the base of it.

Another popular Saint for prayer gardens are St. Francis because he is associated with wild animals and are often depicted with them circling around him. He is often a popular figured on bird baths as well. The birdbath can be coupled with Blessed Mother statue. Other items may include a bird feeder too that will help bring the wild birds to the yard in the early morning.

One last amenity you may want to choose for your prayer garden is a prayer bench, or even a regular park bench that you can place in the garden area itself and surrounding yourself with the peace of nature. It is a way to start a day that helps keep your day full of good things. It may help reduce the stresses of the day and help you better to find Jesus in the people you meet.
