Here is a simple way to pray with the Scriptures as we pray through Lent.
Read the passage the first time. What is happening in the passage?
Read the passage again. What is God saying to you? What word or phrase has stuck out?
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?
