I took a really nice passage from Psalm 25, and put it on a sheet where I broke it down into tiny segments. I gave them the instructions, the were to take those segments and write what it made them think of. Then we prayed, I read the passage, and we began writing. Afterwards, we prayed using what we had written on the sheet.
It's really good to take a small passage of Bible and just mull it over and think about how layered and significant the words are.
I've also noticed that WordLive has a Lectio section on its website (I get my readings by email). I'm probably going to try and use it once a week.
- What strikes you about that passage?
- How does your Bible reading shape your prayer and vice versa?
