Lectio Divina Chapels at Multnomah are, simply, times of focused and prayerful attention to short passages of scripture. This is done in small groups of 4 to 6. The point is to slow down, to sit quietly, and to consider God’s Word, praying for insight and a willing spirit to hear and obey. Repeated readings of the short passage and prayerful consideration of the text give students an opportunity for prolonged exposure to a passage of scripture, placing themselves under the authority of God’s Word and to consider God’s will for their lives that day.

Therefore, I have been stepping deeper into that arena of intercessory prayer with the brethren. As I do, I believe that God wants to know what I really think, feel and desire for His kingdom.
