Praying the scriptures (Lectio Divina) is a slow, meditative reading and reflection on a passage of scripture. Rather than processing the scripture intellectually, you’re invited to let the words and images connect your heart to God’s heart. Explore the many ways to encounter God through scripture and experience by using the lectio divina process.

Lectio Divina

We hope you’ve taken advantage of Alive Now‘s guides for engaging scripture in this sacred and prayerful way. If you haven’t, we invite you now to explore these tools for Lectio Divina:

  • Sacred Reading, another detailed guide to prayerfully reading God’s word.
  • Audio Lectio, an opportunity to hear the scripture read aloud and focus on prayerful listening.
