If you have been a Christian for 30 years or 30 days, chances are you have received the memo that says, “If you want to be a good Christian, you need to read your Bible and pray.” In my experience, most Christians desire to read their Bibles and pray, but often do not know what to do when they get in a quite place to practice these spiritual disciplines. When reading the Bible, they do not understand the Scriptures or know how to apply it to their lives. When praying, they do not know what to pray for and loose focus. Slowly and surely, the believer feels defeated and gives up.
Why EXAMEN.me? An Introduction
Reading the Bible and praying is not just for the spiritually elite; it is vital for every believer. You do not need to understand Greek and the sequence of Paul’s missionary journeys for the Holy Spirit to speak through the Word.
We created EXAMEN.me to provide followers of Christ with a tool to help them focus during their personal worship times. Each Scripture Examen is a simple-guided experience to help you reflect on the Scripture as the Holy Spirit speaks to you. Prayer Examens offer guidance to help you stay focused in your prayer life. We also provide a journal for you to keep a history of what God is teaching and doing in your life.
Whether you use EXAMEN.me or not, make sure the Scripture and prayer are priorities in your life. These disciplines are the bedrock of following and having the mind of Christ.
