Bible Study schedule

Posted by: David Carroll

John Stott used the following time allocations dedicated to Bible study:
  • One hour a day
  • One 3 hour period a week
  • One day every month
  • One week every year

I am inspired. I pray I will have the dedication to turn it into action.

Hi David. Don't think I've forgotten you. I do think of you often and pray that God continues to heal you. I was reading the Bible Study Schedule on John Stott. I now realize I have a long way to go. During the last couple of months while dealing with some personal emotional issues, I too have developed a Bible Study Schedule. One, because we all need to study God's word every day (I pray everyday but I wasn't studying his word everyday) and two, because I felt that God has a plan for me and I don't want to miss out due to my lack of not spending enough time with him. Every morning I read the daily lessons from Joyce Meyer's "Starting Your Day Right", at work I read "Our Daily Bread" and at night I read Joyce Meyer's "Ending Your Day Right". Each book includes a scripture from the bible.On weekends, I read from one to 3 chapters from the bible. Each weekly reading has to do with a suggestion from either James Kennedy or Charles Stanley whom I listen to every weekend. Long time ago my excuse for not reading the bible was that I didn't know where to start. Now I have guidance and enjoy it more. I still feel that I don't worship God enough during the week but I am happy to say that I've never felt better or closer to God. Like I said, I have a long way to go but it is great to feel God's love inside of me.

Hi David, I am praying that you get better soon. I know God is watching over you and I know He will not give you more pain than you can bear. Take care of yourself and know that God loves you.

Millie, you are such an encouragement. I have not told many people why I am so quiet and out of touch these past few months, but I am going through some difficult times physically and mentally. My back is healed, but I have had severe headaches that last about 24-48 hours as much as twice a week for the past three months. On top of all that, I am dependent on some drugs that are complicating matters. Anyway, I know that God has brought me this far and that He will help me though this difficult time too. Anyway, I love you and I want you to know that you have encouraged me at an opportune time just like an angel. I thank God for you.

Your prayers will be answered and are even being answered already!

I thank God for you David. I continuously pray for you. God put you in my life and I want to thank Him for giving me such a dear friend. When I think I'm being a pest, you let me know I'm not. It is important to me for you to know that I care for you and love you and I hope God will give you the strength that you will need to get through this painful time.

Hi, chanced upon your blog and like to share about this post on prayer. I keep a prayer journal but though my journal entries are regular, sometimes I feel that they lack the thirst for the Lord. However, recently with decisions in my life that require faith, I find that my prayer life has improved. Will note your prayer requests in my journal, God Bless!

Hi Mei, it is so nice to hear from fellow children of God. Keep up the good work. The prayer journal sounds great. I believe anything that has to do with prayer, will always improve our lives and it will bring us closer to God.
