Praying with Scripture by Nigro and Christensen

(click here for full text)

  • God speaks to us first. This fundamental truth makes it possible for us to pray to God. He desires communication with us.
  • God invites us to listen. Our response to God’s initial move is to listen to what He is saying. This is the basic attitude of prayer.
  • Ask God the grace to listen to what He says.
  • Begin reading Scripture slowly and attentively.
  • Do not hurry to cover much material (5-10 verses is enough).
  • Pause when something strikes you and wait until you are no longer moved by the experience.
  • A humble attitude of listening is a sign of love for Him, and a real prayer from the heart.
