What Are Spiritual Disciplines?
God has given us the disciplines of the spiritual life as a means of receiving his grace.

Spiritual disciplines are habits used to prepare our hearts and minds to experience the gifts God has for us. The disciplines allow us to place ourselves before God so that he can transform us.”

3 Disciplines to Spark Spiritual Awakening


Meditation is a fundamental discipline in our noisy, chaotic world. The busyness and noise of the world drain our energy, leaving us mentally, physically, and emotionally spent. We, along with David, long to partake of the divine peace, crying out “My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?” (Psalm 42:2).

Meditation can prepare our heart for the Spirit of God. In the quiet, meditative place, we create space so we can sense God, and He will meet us there.

“Eastern meditation is an attempt to empty the mind; Christian meditation is an attempt to fill the mind. The two ideas are quite different… detachment is not enough; we must go on to attachment. The detachment from the confusion all around us in order to have a richer attachment to God.”

The goal of Christian Meditation is for participants to focus on Christ, rather than the anxieties and worries of life. Focusing on Jesus will have a powerful and lasting effect.

One of the greatest promises in scripture is the concept that: “You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you because he trusts in you” (Isaiah 26:3).


Prayer is the most fundamental of all spiritual disciplines because it is our way of communing with God.

If prayer is neglected, we will be doing everything in our own strength, apart from God. Overtime, we will surely notice the effects of this isolation.

Despite this importance of prayer, many Christians avoid it because they aren’t sure how to pray “correctly” or are afraid God won’t hear them. Lack of prayer perpetuates the problem, rather than inspiring them to step into a life of prayer.

Satan loves the absence of prayer. Christians striving to operate in their own strength, relying on their own idea of God is exactly what the enemy wants.

From this place, Christians exist in a state of brokenness and insecurity effectively neutralizing any efforts to grow.

Prayer is the process of coming before God in authenticity and openness, seeking forgiveness and love.

Prayer is the central avenue God uses to transform us. If we are unwilling to change, we will abandon prayer as a noticeable characteristic of our lives.

The closer we come to the heartbeat of God the more we see our need and the more we desire to be conformed to Christ.”


Fasting is one the most misunderstood and neglected of the disciplines. It is often seen as outdated and an overly austere denial of self.

“Of course God intends for us to be well fed and healthy,” we say to justify ourselves. While simultaneously turning our backs on a discipline regularly practiced by figures such as Moses, Paul, and Jesus himself.

Furthermore, we are deeply shaped by our culture. “The constant propaganda fed us today convinces us that if we do not have three large meals each day, with several snacks in between, we are on the verge of starvation.

This, coupled with the popular belief that it is a positive virtue to satisfy every human appetite, has made fasting seem obsolete.

”While fasting in a Christian way is typically only seen as a form of self-denial, that isn’t the heart of the matter. Instead, the heart behind the practice is to give up physical food while filling yourself with the nourishment of God’s word.
