24 Ways to Connect With God in 24 Hours


Dear Friends,

Last month I wrote about having a quiet time with God each morning. This month I want to build on that by offering ideas on how to connect with God.
.
1.      Read your Bible and hear God speak.
2.      Pray and let God listen.
3.      Take a walk in nature and praise God for the wonders of creation.
4.      Shoot arrow prayers as challenges arise.
5.      Pray for neighbors as you drive by their homes.
6.      Pray for your family whenever you pause by a stop light.
7.      Pick a symbol that reminds you of God and display it prominently.
8.      Pray for situations as you read the newspaper.
9.      Thank God for the morning as you arise.
10.  Thank God for health as you brush your teeth.
11.  Sing hymns or songs of praise as you shower or drive to work.
12.  Sit and meditate in a quiet place.
13.  Ask God for wisdom in establishing priorities as you plan your day.
14.  Thank God for your food.
15.  Pray for guidance and safety before leaving in your car.
16.  Pray for family members as you see their photos around your house.
17.  Attend worship on Sundays and pray for church staff weekdays.
18.  Listen to Christian radio.
19.  Watch Christian television.
20.  Call a lonely friend and pray with her/him on the phone.
21.  Thank God for your senses when you see a beautiful sunset, hear music, smell food or touch a baby’s face.
22.  Memorize scripture as you exercise.
23.  Evaluate your day as you go to bed and ask forgiveness for sins.
24.  Tell God your troubles as you fall asleep.

If you add just one of these to your daily routine, your life will be that much richer. Have a blessed month and add a comment to tell us of other ways you find to connect with God.
