Hints for Quiet time* Elisabeth Elliot
Having a quiet time with the Lord every day is absolutely essential if you expect to grow spiritually. But you have to plan it. It won’t “just happen”. 1. Take a single book. If you are new at this, start with the Gospel of Mark. 2. Pray, first, for the Holy Spirit’s teaching. 3. Read a few verses, a paragraph, or a chapter. 4. Ask… What does this passage teach me about: (1) God, (2) Jesus Christ, (3) the Holy Spirit, (4) myself, (5)sins to confess or avoid, (6) commands to obey, (7) what Christian love is? 5. Keep a notebook. Write down some of your special prayer requests with the date. Record when it comes & note also any answers to your prayers. You will be amazed at what a difference a quiet time will make in your life.
