If you are one of the many Christians, having a not-so-great prayer life, take this opportunity to re-examine yourself. Three important spiritual areas in our personal life are,
- Prayer life
- Bible Reading
If you think your spiritual life needs improvement in these three area, start by setting apart a specific time early morning between 4:00 am and 6:00 am.
Start with prayer
Glorify God for a few minutes. We glorify God by humbling ourselves. We also glorify Him by praising his attributes. The Bible is our best model for this. Psalms: 136 is a good place to start.
Confess your sins.
Thank God for his mercy, grace and love. Thank Him for everything he has done and is doing in your lives.
Pray for your children, missionaries, church, nation, people in authority, etc. and finally yourself!
(If it helps sing a song of praise, to stay focused)
Read the bible
Focus more on quality than quantity. Meditating on a verse and appropriating the truth in our life will be more profitable than scanning through a few chapters.
Witness and fellowship
When fellowshiping with fellow believers use your spiritual gifts for your own edification and the edification of others, so that God’s name is glorified. Live your life “…that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
