15 Posts on Quiet Times, Bible Reading & Prayer

Do you have a firm grip on your devotional life and time with God every day? Many Christians don’t, and I am convinced that this is the main reason why so many of us don’t live in victory, and seem to struggle continually to find the joy and peace that are promised in the Bible.

I have gathered together all my posts from the last 4 years (I didn’t know I had been blogging that long!) on quiet times, Bible reading and prayer. I have been a Christian for about 30 years now (gulp!) and during that time a major goal has always been to spend quality time with God.

I have failed many times, learned many things, and maybe you can find something that will help you, from what God has taught me over the years 🙂

If you don’t know where to start, I would suggest that you begin with this post – which has 10 tips for quiet times.
