Here is a guide to praying scripture called Lectio Divina. It may be used with any scripture, so feel free to pick some of your favorites or simply turn to any random page.
For a suggested list of scriptures per day visit the Daily Bible Reading Schedule page.
This is one of four ways offered to spend time daily with God and it’s the basis for the Daily Prayer Podcast (see link below). Each member of Eastman First Methodist is encouraged to pick at least one to create a daily habit with God. Here are the other three:
|Phrase||What phrase stands out to you?||Listen|
|Word||What word stands out to you?||Listen|
|Message||What is God telling you?||Listen|
|Prayer||Tell God what you heard||Listen|
The Flow for Each Stage
|Silence||Be still and quiet and in a mindset of prayer|
|Reading||Listen for answer to question for the stage|
|Silence||Be present with response to question|
|Sharing||Share, as willing, your answer to the question|
