of Solitary Prayer
In meditation one approaches the scripture
passage like a love letter; this approach is especially helpful in praying
Read the passage slowly, loud or in a whisper, letting the words wash over
you, savoring them.
Stay with the words that especially catch your attention; absorb them the
way the thirsty earth receives the rain.
Keep repeating a word or phrase, aware of the feelings that are awakened.
Read, and reread the passage lovingly as you would a letter from a dear
friend, or as you would softly sing the chorus of a song.
