Forms of Solitary Prayer

One of the approaches to prayer is reflective reading of scripture or other spiritual readings.

“I opened my mouth; he gave me the scroll to eat and said, ‘Feed and be satisfied by the scroll I am giving you,’  I ate it, and it tasted sweet as honey.”  (Ez. 3:2-3)
Spiritual reading is always enriching to our life of prayer.  The method described below is especially supportive in times when prayer is difficult or dry.
METHOD:  The reading is done slowly, pausing periodically to allow the words and phrases to enter within you.  When a thought resonates deeply, stay with it, allowing the fullness of it to penetrate your being.  Relish the word received.  Respond authentically and spontaneously as in a dialogue.
