Essential Journey to the Cross: Pray


The Lenten Essential Journey to the Cross begins Monday, March 6 and takes readers through 31 days of short Bible readings and reflections using SU's Bible Reading Method, a simple, five-step approach for bringing the Bible alive as you read.

This week, in preparation for beginning your Essential Journey to the Cross, we'll review each of the five steps, one at a time.

 Step 1: Pray

Before you even open a Bible, ask God to help you understand the passage for the day. God, through the Holy Spirit, is the "author" of the Bible. He's given us his written Word to communicate his eternal truth--and he wants to speak to you. Invite him.

As the boy Samuel was taught to pray "Speak Lord, for your servant is listening" (1 Samuel 3:9), let that be your prayerful attitude as you start your time with God. Then, you'll be ready to listen to what God wants to say to you through the Bible passage that day.

The Essential Journey to the Cross begins next Monday!
