Wednesday Fast Initiative

A challenge for Lent

These are 22 questions the members of John Wesley’s Holy Club asked themselves every day in their private devotions over 200 years ago. 

  1. Am I consciously or unconsciously creating the impression that I am better than I really am? In other words, am I a hypocrite? 

  2. Am I honest in all my acts and words, or do I exaggerate? 

  3. Do I confidentially pass on to another what was told to me in confidence? 

  4. Can I be trusted? 

  5. Am I a slave to dress, friends, work, or habits? 

  6. Am I self-conscious, self-pitying, or self-justifying? 

  7. Did the Bible live in me today? 

  8. Do I give it time to speak to me everyday? 

  9. Am I enjoying prayer? 

  10. When did I last speak to someone else about my faith? 

  11. Do I pray about the money I spend? 

  12. Do I get to bed on time and get up on time? 

  13. Do I disobey God in anything? 

  14. Do I insist upon doing something about which my conscience is uneasy? 

  15. Am I defeated in any part of my life? 

  16. Am I jealous, impure, critical, irritable, touchy, or distrustful? 

  17. How do I spend my spare time? 

  18. Am I proud? 

  19. Do I thank God that I am not as other people, especially as the Pharisees who despised the publican? 

  20. Is there anyone whom I fear, dislike, disown, criticize, hold a resentment toward or disregard? If so, what am I doing about it? 

  21. Do I grumble or complain constantly? 

  22. Is Christ real to me?
