Reading the Bible is important for everyone, but it isn't as easy as reading just any book. The words in your Bible were inspired by the Holy Spirit, so to get the most out of it, you will need the Holy Spirit's help. This ancient practice for reading scripture, known as "Lectio Divina," will help you interact with the living word of God.
(This section is here to put action behind your reading. On some days, your reading will be enhanced by "exercising" what you just read.)
Is there anyone in your life who you have recently found yourself thinking about often? Maybe it's a friend, family member, co worker, acquaintance, etc. Today, commit to praying for that person throughout the entire week.
If there isn't anyone who has been on your mind recently, that's okay too! Ask God to show you someone who he wants you to be praying for this week. Whenever God shows you who that person is, commit them to prayer over the next few days.
Make this a priority! If you need to, schedule a time each day that you'll pray for this person.
