Anotheer Way to Pray

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

Philippians 4:6-7 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

It was Saturday night and I was reviewing my scriptures for Sunday when God impressed on me to change the subject to prayer. There are many forms and ways to pray but there is one many haven’t experienced. The Latin word for it is “Lectio divina” where you read the scripture passage slowly, meditating on each word or phrase then praying what the Holy Spirit puts in your heart on that word or phrase before going to the next one. In this we are listening to the heart of God. I used the “Lord’s Prayer” as an example. It starts with the phrase, “Our Father.” I expressed to God, “Thank You, God for the privilege of calling You Father. I can’t even comprehend the great cost for You to send Your Son to earth in the form of man to die such a cruel death for a sinner like me. Thank You, Father.” This is a small example of lectio divina prayer. I encourage you to try it. It will bring you even closer to our God and Father.
