15 minutes in prayer reflecting on your current spiritual state

Firstly, Review the document on Spiritual disciplines (attached).

Secondly, Spend at least 15 minutes in prayer reflecting on your current spiritual state, asking God to show you at least one spiritual practice that would fit your current schedule and that would help you move forward in your spiritual journey.

Thirdly, Decide on a plan and turn in a one-page proposal that flows specifically from your narrative and self-assessment.

Fourthly, Describe your experiences with at least two of the disciplines. Include a rationale for why that spiritual practice is appropriate to your life at this time and description of what you will do. When? Where? What resources will you need? Be as specific as possible.

Further, The expectation is to spend at least 60 minutes per week engaging in your spiritual discipline activity. Describe specifically what you will do, when you will do it and where (if appropriate). This could be 15 minutes sessions – four day per week, three 20 minutes sessions, or 10 minutes sessions six times per week.

Additionally, I suggest that if you are not sure where to start, that a good place to begin is with Studying or Reading. You can choose a Book of the Bible. Just simply set aside your “time allotment” each day or times of the week and simply begin to read. If you are unfamiliar with the Bible, a great place to begin with the Book of John or Mark or Paul’s letter to the Philippians.

Finally, If you wish to combine two of the disciples, that is fine. Just specify this in your proposal. You may want to consider 10 minutes of Bible ready with 5 minutes of prayer and 5 minutes of silence/solitude.

Lastly, Use this 20 minutes “plan” for 3 times a week and you have your 60 minutes/week for the assignment!
