Personal Spiritual Exercises
Just like physical exercises help strengthen and stretch our bodies for healthy living, these spiritual exercises are meant to move us spiritually in ways that may be new so we might experience inner growth. Since God longs for us to experience Him with our whole selves—mind, body, spirit—we invite you along each week to strengthen your souls with suggestions and prompts.
Prayer Focus: With this being the last life group meeting for a while, be intentional about praying for the people in your group. Each day, choose a friend in your life group to lift up in prayer. Pray for them to become more aware of the Holy Spirit, and to live as though He is with them in every moment. After praying for them, find a way to reach out to the individual to connect or offer encouragement.
Scripture Focus: Galatians 5:16-26 is a passage that helps us identify characteristics of people who are filled with the Holy Spirit. Engage with this passage throughout your week to help identify practical ways you can keep in step with the Spirit.
