Doing Devotions

Creating A Habit of Bible Reading & Prayer

Mark 1:35 In the morning, while it was still very dark, he got up and went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed.

Luke 4:42 At daybreak he departed and went into a deserted place.

Luke 5:16 But he would withdraw to deserted places and pray.

Mark 6:31 He said to them, "Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while."

Do It!

Keep Doing It!

Whether you feel like it or not! Do not depend on your feelings, but on the Lord! Same time, same place, every day, and you have the beginnings of a habit.

Keep it fresh!

Worship. Pray in the Spirit. Depend on God working in you. "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness." So, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. (2 Corinthians 12:9)
