Spiritual Practice

Connect with Jesus

Susie Banks

Pick 15 minutes when you can be alone. (You might even have to get up early!) Begin by reading Psalm 23 aloud.

Imagine yourself walking through a quiet, wooded park. Picture Jesus walking with you. Enjoy his company.

    • Tell him the good things that are happening in your life. Realize that he wants good things for you and give him thanks.

    • Share with him your problems and worries. Know that he listens intently and will be with you, helping you through the hard times.

    • Confess to him the times you have messed up lately. Picture him forgiving you and helping you to forgive the persons who have hurt you.

    • Share with him your dreams and goals. Ask for his help to achieve them.

Clear your mind. Spend three minutes listening intently to what Jesus might say to you.
