SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINE

Jesus obviously made prayer a priority in His incredible life. As has often been observed, if He needed to devote time to prayer, what does that say about our prayer lives? As we develop our prayer lives, it is important to remember that prayer is a spiritual discipline. As with other disciplines like exercise, playing a sport, or improving our career skills – our prayer lives are developed over time with consistent practice. Daily prayer may include praise, thanksgiving, confession, petition, and intercession. Spending a minute or two on each would start out at 5 to 10 minutes a day for prayer. If you do that every day, I am certain that#10 before long you will be adding more time to your daily prayer life. God never finds perfect people but He is always looking for disciplined people who devote themselves to a lifestyle of prayer!

“I have posted watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the LORD, give yourselves no rest.” (Isaiah 62:6)

-JKB

🔹 AS PART OF OUR SPIRITUAL “RE-SET” IN JANUARY, I AM CHALLENGING OUR CONGREGATION TO READ THE ENTIRE NEW TESTAMENT THIS MONTH! IT REQUIRES ABOUT 8-9 CHAPTERS PER DAY, BUT YOU CAN DO IT – WE WILL DO IT TOGETHER!

I SUGGEST YOU DIVIDE YOUR READINGS INTO MORNING AND EVENING. THAT WAY YOU WILL KEEP UP. IF YOU FALL BEHIND GET CAUGHT UP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

♦️Day 7: Mark 14 – Luke 2

One thought on “SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINE (Day 7)

  1. I am loving your Prayer Devotionals and thank you for sending them to all of us on email. I just keep wondering what God would do if there were just one person completely devoted to daily, sincere, passionate prayer each day. God had the great Spurgeon come to London for a huge Revival because one woman began to pray for that. What does God want to do in our generation? Prayer is the key. God Bless you, Dr. Bowman for leading the Austin/Hill Country to PRAY!
    Every Blessing,
