Goal 1

Prayer Time: Keep working on getting up to at least 15 minutes of quality, set-aside, prayer time with God each day and/or increase your already 15 min by 5 or 10min per day (set a timer and really stick with it!)
  • Try starting your prayer time with ACTS prayer (click for explanation and examples).

Goal 2

Bible Reading: Incorporate at least 5 sentences from the Bible in your prayer time...perhaps go all out and use one of the following resources to guide your reading choices:
  • Pick a Gospel, start at the beginning and read a couple paragraphs a day prayerfully
  • 30 Day Walk with Jesus
  • Try out the 40 Day Intensive Bible Challenge (feel free to just do one of the suggested readings per day)
  • Read the daily Mass readings or just the Gospel of the day.  You can find them on the USCCB website.  Avoid the temptation to read online, though--force yourself to open the Book, search for the passage and read within the pages of the Bible

Reminder: You can find a variety of Catholic Bibles at the Our Lady of the Rosary Gift Shop in Little Italy or just google/amazon "Catholic Bible"
Some recommendations if you want a Bible with some extra inserts/learning opportunities:
Catholic Answers Bible
Great Adventure Study Bible

Goal 3

Watch The Search Episode 2: Who Are You  (VERY GOOD, and we will not be watching in class)

In your prayer time, Ask the Lord:
“Father, what is my purpose?”  “Lord, what unique mission did you create me for?”
Then, listen and write what you believe you heard him say?
