How to Be Consistent with Devotions

  1. Get a Bible app and read as soon as you wake up.
  • It’s motivating. When we plan to read a lot at a time, we tend to feel bogged down. It might even feel like an empty ritual. This helps keep the “life” in our devotions. You can always read more at a later time in the day.
  • It’s better to read slowly and get something out of it, than to read a lot, simply for head knowledge. By focusing on a single thing to apply, you’ll remember it more easily.
  • For a ministry you follow on Facebook, click “See first” so you will see their posts at the top of your news feed.
  • On Youtube, subscribe to ministries that have at least one new video every week.
  • With email, sign up for devotionals like the ones at dailysuccess.org.
  • Pray for specific needs. Every day, people are asking for prayer. Maybe they don’t even ask for prayer, but we know they need it. Don’t put it off until later, but stop right then and pray for them.
  • Pray for people who are suffering. Think of slaves, orphans, persecuted Christians, and other people in need.
  • Pray for the unsaved throughout the world, that Christians will be sent to lead them to Jesus (Matthew 9:38).
  • Pray for the government to make wise decisions that will accomplish God’s purposes.
  • Sometimes, pray for everyone you know. Pray for your family members, friends, even enemies (which Jesus said to do). Even if you can’t think of any needs they have, still pray for their relationship with God because that is the most important thing in life.
