  1. Dariush, in answer to your query/prompt: I keep a conversational journal of interactions between God and me. He often speaks to me by bringing to mind scriptures I have stored away in my heart. (For that to work, one has to have some of the word in there.) I find that if I honor the conversation by recording it, more comes from the shared time.

  2. Here’s what I do. I read in two places, from the Psalms and reading through the Bible, rotating from the Old Testament and New Testament. So I will read all of Genesis, then I will read in Matthew. But I don’t read very much at a time. And I let the time I have determine how much I read each day. I usually read from the Old or New testament for about seven minutes, then the psalms for about four minutes. then last I pray for five or six minutes–but I always end up praying for longer than that. Oh, I usually take notes on what I read and how God is speaking to me. So my quiet times are generally about 15 minutes. I know that’s kind of short, but I try to make it quality time with the Lord, and try never to miss a day.

    1. Having quality time matters. That’s great covering both, old and new testament in 15 mins plus prayer 🛐. Did it happen a time God hold you longer in his presence Stephen?
