    Veronica, thank you for your comment as we are blessed to learn whenever a webpage is helpful to others. It is very important that we incorporate God’s Word into our daily lives and it helps to realize that Scriptures speak to us personally today just as they did when written.

    One of the most widely practiced ancient disciplines of the church is a slow praying of the scriptures which enables the Bible to become a means of union with God. It’s a way of listening to the Word. being nourished by the Ward, praying the Word, and letting the Word pray through you. This practice asks us to stop talking, open our ears, and listen deeply for what God is saying to each of us this day. This prayer process has four steps:
    1. Select a short passage of scripture, read the passage slowly and out loud. Take time to pronounce and hear each word.
    2. As you read the text, listen for a word or phrase that stands out to you, takes hold of you, or touches you.
    3.When you hear that word or phrase prayerfully meditate on it, give it your full attention. Allow that word to touch and change you at your deepest self.
    4. Finally take a moment to simply sit silently in God’s presence and give thanks for the day and your life.

    If you want to try this, I would suggest you select the books of Psalms and John to begin. May God bless you in this endeavor.

  • I am truly in need of this website, my life is not here it should be with God. I feel his presence daily and know the wonderful words of God. Just needing to get closer to him by learning the Bible and also truly living it.
