Goal 1

Continue with or Start the following from last week's first coal:

Use this form to take the John 15 Challenge.  Pray with the Holy Spirit and ask Him how He wants you to commit to a deeper quality prayer time than you currently have. Write your commitment down and tell a friend about it. 

Goal 2

Choose one of the following BIBLE READING METHODS to implement and into your life and do it every day this week:

  • Choose a short verse from the Bible & read out loud (or in your head) 3-7 times (however many words it is), emphasizing a different word each time (could do a different one each day or stick with the same one for a week).

  • Practice Lectio Divina with a different scene from one of the Gospels each day.  Try the method of meditating on it, by putting yourself in the scene.

  • Read one Psalm per day (perhaps in order 1-7 or bounce around), one chapter or portion of a Gospel and one portion of a letter from the New Testament each day.

  • Pick one chapter from the Bible to prayerfully read every day this week (i.e. same passage over and over each day).  Ask the Holy Spirit to show you something new each time.  Write down what He highlights or what new questions arise.  Converse with Him about it.  
    • Suggested passages *these are longer--you can focus on different small sections each day but read through the entirety to start off, then refocus and re-read just a small portion.  Try listening to it being read to you one of the days as well.
