Questions for Self-Examination at the End of the Day

From John Fletcher:

  1. Did I awake spiritual, and was I watchful in keeping my mind from wandering this morning when I was rising?
  2. Have I this day got nearer to God in times of prayer, or have I given way to a lazy, idle spirit?
  3. Has my faith been weakened by unwatchfulness or quickened by diligence this day?
  4. Have I this day walked by faith and eyed God in all things?
  5. Have I denied myself in all unkind words and thoughts? Have I delighted in seeing others preferred before me?
  6. Have I made the most of my precious time, as far as I had light, strength, and opportunity?
  7. Have I kept the issues of my heart in the means of grace, so as to profit by them?
  8. What have I done this day for the souls and bodies of God’s dear saints?
  9. Have I laid out anything to please myself when I might have saved the money for the cause of God?
  10. Have I governed well my tongue this day, remembering that “in a multitude of words there wanteth not sin”?
  11. In how many instances have I denied myself this day?
  12. Do my life and conversation adorn the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
