Forms of Solitary Prayer

1. MEDITATION
In meditation one approaches the scripture passage like a love letter; this approach is especially helpful in praying poetic passages.


 
METHOD:
+  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.
