Quiet time

Quiet time

For the 2006 Raffi album, see Quiet Time (album).

A quiet time is a concept used by 20th-century Protestants, mostly evangelical Christians, for a regular (often daily) individual session of spiritual activities, most notably prayer and/or private study of the Bible. This can also be called, at least in the United States, "devotions" or "doing devotions".
