Lectio Divina means Divine Reading. It is divine because we are allowing the Holy Spirit to transform our hearts while praying the Scriptures and listening to what He is saying now, today. This way of prayer incarnates the Living Word into our hearts and we become more like Jesus. It is an ancient way practiced by Christians of all streams and denominations. It’s simple and life giving, it renews the mind, enflames the heart and empowers for action.
It is the fastest way to start hearing God’s voice and to develop your revelatory and prophetic gifts.
It is the most natural way of communing with God and staying in His presence while following your day to day schedule.
It is the way of prayer practiced by the Christians since the time of the Book of Acts and its goal is to eat the scroll and become like Jesus. You will encounter the living Word of God in a way that is intimate and redeeming.
It develops attentiveness, self-knowledge, deepens the awareness of God and constructs the habit of walking in the Spirit. You become a person living contemplative life, ie perceiving the reality with Jesus’ heart.
It engages body and soul, mind and heart, in the rhythm of freely flowing grace.
It is often wrongly diminished to a method or technique of few steps instead being taught as a way of spiritual growth, transformation, healing, deliverance, discernment and a continual prayer.
