Pray with the Scriptures

Gospel of Matthew

 

Choose and read a short passage of the Gospels or other section of the New Testament.  Pray with the scripture using the three steps:

 

HEAD – Think about the passage.  Imagine the scene.  What is happening?  Who are the individuals involved?  What are they thinking and feeling?  What is meaning behind the words or event?
HEART – Speak to Christ from the heart – thank him, ask for forgiveness, ask for help, talk about the scripture and talk about your life.
HANDS – How can I put this message into practice?   What is something simple and practical I can do today?
Try to commit to a minimum of ten minutes of prayer with the scriptures each and every day.
