DEVOTION: “One of the many reasons that I love praying the Bible is that not only is it a method of prayer, it is also a method of meditation on Scripture. You read a verse, think about it for a moment, talk to God about it, then perhaps you look at it again and go through the process once more. By doing so, you are not only praying the Bible, you are absorbing it.” – Donald Whitney
Absorbing the Bible. Yes, please.
I love the thought of this. Actually absorbing the words, the ideas, the teachings and traits of the Bible into your mind, soul and very being. That’s what we’re doing when we pray and read the Bible this way.
What you’ll find is that it becomes more relevant, more memorable as you read and pray this way. You’ll remember it more. That’s a good thing.
It also makes for an interesting way to memorize scripture. If you sit with one verse of a Psalm and pray it over and over, it makes it that much easier to remember it and a more efficient way to memorize Scripture.
Try it. Keep on praying the Scriptures today.
