Ways To Connect
As Believers, we want to connect with Yahvah (God) in a way that empowers us to love Yahvah, love people and love life. And we also believe that our faith grows when we do this on a consistent, daily basis through prayer and devotional time. Below is a list of resources and thoughts on connecting daily with Yahah, whether you just began a relationship with Yeshua (Jesus), are growing in Mashiach (Christ), or are Mashiach-centered in your life. If you would like to begin developing a daily prayer and devotional time:
1. Find a consistent time each day to pray and read the Word. Maybe you begin your day with prayer, or have a time set aside before you go to bed at night.
2. Focus on the quality of time and not the quantity of time you devote to prayer and Bible reading. Spend 5-10 minutes each day praying, thanking and praising Yahvah, as well as inviting the Holy Spirit to lead and guide you throughout the day. Ask for His provision and wisdom for your everyday circumstances. Read a devotional or a Bible verse or passage to focus on for the day. Ask Yahvah to show you how to apply what you read to your everyday life. Perhaps, begin by reading the Gospel Mattiyahu (Matthew) or Luke.
If you would like to further develop your daily prayer and devotional time: 1. Attend a Bible Study class on Wednesday nights that focuses on Bible topics. Also, we have a deeper level Hebrew Class every 1 Sunday of the month. You will have an opportunity to learn how to study the Bible through different methods, and to continue to become more familiar with the Bible and Hebrew. 2. Invest in resources that will develop your prayer and devotional. Listen to spiritual worship & praise music.
