Ideas for your personal Bible study and prayer time

This is the stack of books which I currently use for my personal Bible study and prayer time — four of these are always in the stack, some are just temporary.

The Reese Chronological Bible — this is the Bible I’ve been using for 20 years or more.

I would prefer a different translation, but it only comes in the KJV. I just learned about a new edition of the Reese Chronological Bible — KJV Reese Chronological Study Bible. I’ll be buying this ASAP.

Another important book to me — Morning and Evening Daily Devotional by C.H. Spurgeon

Switch On Your Brain Every Day: 365 Readings for Peak Happiness, Thinking, and Health by Dr. Caroline Leaf

Switch On Your Brain Every Day gives the “science” behind Philippians 4:8 and Romans 12:2.

4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.

12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
