Prayer Life and Bible Study
Our course starts out with a prayer and because prayer is so important to finding the right life recipe, that is where we begin the course itself.
Often during crisis, we turn to God in prayer. Very often, we will have to dust off our Bible before we can read it in the rare times we turn to our Bible. One of the biggest parts of a life recipe is to have an active prayer life, including daily Bible reading and devotion.
Individuals should each take time throughout the day to pray. We should also have our personal Bible reading and devotion.
This is a great time to actually dig into the Bible. Some study Bibles will have some background information. As an individual, one should search the scriptures, follow the footnotes, or read a good study guide, and really get into the Bible.
Couples should share prayer time, Bible reading, and devotion. This is a very important part of a good life recipe. During the Bible and prayer time, couples should discuss what they are reading and studying very much like they are in a Sunday school class.
Obtaining a Bible study lesson or daily devotional reading like Our Daily Bread or In Touch is a very good idea. In addition, an in-depth look at your upcoming Sunday school lesson for the next Sunday may be beneficial. Get yourself a good Bible commentary like one written by J. Vernon McGeeor another author who interests you. You can also get great devotionals delivered to your email each day from Tyndale Rewards. With Tyndale Rewards you can also earn books free.
Review materials related to your chosen area of study and read those during your personal prayer and devotion time. Bring these together to the couple Bible discussion.
