Saddhā-balan bhāveti.

Viriya-balan bhāveti.

Sati-balan bhāveti.

Samādhi-balan bhāveti.

Pannā-balan bhāveti.

He develops the spiritual capability of faith.

He develops the spiritual capability of energy.

He develops the spiritual capability of mindfulness.

He develops the spiritual capability of concentration.

He develops the spiritual capability of wisdom.

My interest in the five powers and faculties is only increasing as the sense of samvega grows in my heart. I feel that I really haven’t been making the effort required to progress and free myself from suffering and that part of the reason was a hesitancy to commit time to study and practice. Why? It can only be delusion. I have stumbled on to this piece by a Sri Lankan mahathero and I hope you find it as useful as I do. https://www.dhammatalks.net/Books11/Ariyadhamma_Mahathera-The_Five_Spiritual_Capabilities-(Bala).pdf
