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. Next week in Life Group, take a few moments to share how the Lord may have used this exercise in your life.
Prayer Focus: This week pray each day for the person you identified above who does not know the Lord.
Pray for them to be open to the Lord.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to soften their heart.
Pray for God to orchestrate circumstances to draw them to Himself.
Pray for an opportunity to share what the Lord has done for you.
Scripture Focus: Psalm 119 refers to the value of God’s law (Word, statutes, precepts, commands, etc.) in almost every verse. Take time over this week (and maybe part of next week) to meditatively read all of Psalm 119. It is naturally broken into 8 verse segments. Each morning, read a segment and listen for what the Holy Spirit wants to speak to you.
