Engaging with scripture is a powerful spiritual practice. Try spiritual reading as a way to listen for God’s voice and message for you as you prayerfully read.

  • Set aside some time for this interaction with God.
  • Find a meaningful way to invite and acknowledge the presence of the Holy Spirit with you. You might say a prayer inviting the Spirit. You could sing a song…click here for a song. You might light a candle. You can set up a chair next to you to symbolize the presence of God sitting with you.
  • Select your own passage to read several times and reflect on OR visit a site which offers a daily reading selection and helpful instructions and questions to guide you through prayerfully reading scripture on your own. Click Here for help.
