Praying with Scripture

woman prayingLectio Divina is the  contemplative practice of reading and responding to the Word in a personal way.  The four steps of Lectio Divina are: read, reflect, respond and rest.

When you read God’s Word, be attentive to any word or phrase that stands out to you.

Reflect on that word or phrase, repeating it in your mind over and over.

Respond with your heart to the ideas and feelings that word or phrase generates.

Rest, and let the Word rest in you.
