Interested in reading the Bible? Great! Here’s one of our favorite methods:


Read, Think, Pray, Live by Tony Jones is the best guide available for learning how to pray biblically. This practice is referred to as lectio divina, which is Latin for “sacred reading.” This practice involves a four-step process, spending a few minutes on each step, for praying through a passage of Scripture.

  1. Read the selected passage.
  2. Think about the passage, about life, God, others.
  3. Pray the words of the passage.
  4. Live—spend the last few minutes in silence, allowing the Holy Spirit to speak.
