Lectio Divina Prayer method

Lectio Divina is Latin for divine reading, spiritual reading, or "holy reading," and represents a method of prayer and scriptural reading intended to engender communion with the Triune God and to increase in the knowledge of God's Word. It is a way of praying with Scripture that calls one to study, ponder, listen and, finally, pray from God's Word.

Method:

Lectio is typically practiced daily for one continuous hour. A selection from the Holy Scriptures is chosen ahead of time, often as a daily progression through a particular book of the Bible.

Comments on the Litanies and Meditations (read first)

These are for your personal meditations. The meditations/litanies are locked to maintain their solitude, so if you wish to comment about any of the meditations/litanies please do so here.

Concerning the choice of Bible version for the scriptural meditations, I selected the KJV not for any superior translation it posses but rather for it's prose and familiarity to the English speaking community.

If you have any uncopyrighted litanies or meditations that you would like to see added please email me about them. A link to an on-line copy would be a big help.

A Thought

Take twelve whole months,
Clean them thoroughly of all bitterness, hate, and jealousy,
Make them just as fresh and clean as possible.

Now cut each month into twenty-eight, thirty, or
thirty-one different parts,
but don't make up the whole batch at once.
Prepare it one day at a time out of these ingredients.

Mix well into each day one part of faith,
one part of patience, one part of courage,
and one part of work.

Add to each day one part of hope,
faithfulness, generosity, and kindness.
Blend with one part prayer,
one part meditation, and one good deed.
