Is. 30:29-31 “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.  Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

Col. 3:1-2 “Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. 2Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”

2 Tim. 1:7  “For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.”

Spend at least five minutes in complete silence waiting on the Lord each day for a week.  If you’ve never done this, you have no idea what might happen.  Give it a try.  Perhaps God will speak to you in some way.  Although five minutes doesn’t seem long, the point is to give God uninterrupted quality time. 

We obviously spend the most amount of time with the one person we love the most.  Think about it.  The more we love someone, the more we invest time with him or her.  Apply this principle to our relationship with the Lord.  How much time is enough with God?  How much time is too little or even irreverent? 

Is there one right answer to these two questions.  No!  The number of hours we spend praying throughout our lifetime is between each of us and the Lord.  Time spent in prayer is like the mercury in a thermometer.  The more time spent praying the hotter we are toward the Lord. 

Journal the results of your experience with the Lord.
