Lectio Divina: Praying with Scripture and the Daily Readings

Here is a simple way to pray with the Scriptures as we pray through Lent.

Lectio: Listening.
Read the passage the first time. What is happening in the passage?

Meditatio: Meditation.
Read the passage again. What is God saying to you? What word or phrase has stuck out?

Oratio: Prayer/discussion.
Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you what is meant by the word or phrase. Listen closely.

Contemplatio: Rest in God’s presence and the answer that is given.
What is God calling you to?
