I’m writing this from Texas where I’m enjoying a beautiful prayer garden. It is based off of the twelve tribes of Israel and includes plaques describing the tribes, Scriptural references and significance of each. My favorite is the section on the tribe of Judah including a beautiful water fountain and statue of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. I enjoyed walking through the garden, meditating on God’s Word and His beauty in nature. Another favorite spot was the Shulamite herb garden (pictured above) based off of Song of Solomon and thinking about the spices mentioned. Am I a fragrant garden for my Beloved?

Closer to home is the beautiful Alta Sierra Biblical Gardens near Grass Valley, Ca. 20 Biblical stations can take approximately 1 ½ hours to walk through on a self-guided tour. Click here for more info. Need some time to refocus and refresh? Consider checking out a Biblical Gardens near you!
What about your backyard? Are there ways that you can add some meaningful items to focus your mind and heart on God? Ask God what theme He might have for you. Do some research. Maybe it’s planting certain plants, a foot path or stones or plaques with Scripture on them. It doesn’t have to be expensive, just something that is meaning to you and the Lord.
Comment and let me know about your favorite prayer spot with the Lord.
