P.R.A.Y. Scripture

What would change in your life if you expected God to speak to you through His Word every time you opened it… and He did? God speaks to us today through worship, prayer, people, and circumstances but the primary way He speaks is through the Scripture.

P.R.A.Y. Scripture is an acronym for a method I have created for listening prayer to hear God’s voice through His Word. This method is based in the ancient practice of sacred reading, slow reflecting, and simply responding to the thoughts and impressions the Holy Spirit gives through Scripture.

You learn to P.R.A.Y. Scripture in your personal quiet time during the week, write down what God reveals to you, and then share it with others in a small group. Learning to hear God speak through Scripture takes practice and is best learned and enjoyed with others.

You will find groups to join listed below or you can start one of your own.
