Please join us each week as we "Dive Deep" into this sermon series about prayer beginning on July 29 and concluding on September 2.
Part of our Deep Dive study is to dive into the scriptures in a brand new way. We are offering this SOAP study for you so you can begin to enter into new habits of faith. See what you think.
How to use a SOAP study devotional:
First, choose one
of the scriptures from those offered for the day and make it the focus of your
SOAP study for the day.
Below are the instructions:
S – The S stands for Scripture- you physically write out the scripture……you’ll be amazed that what God will reveal to you just by taking the time to slow down and actually write out what you are reading!
O – The O stands for observation- what do you see in the verses that you’re reading? Who is the audience? Is there a repetition of words? What words stand out to you?
A – The A stands for Application- this is when God’s Word becomes personal. What is God saying to me today? How can I apply what I just read to my own personal life? What changes do I need to make? Is there an action that I need to take?
P – And finally P stands for Prayer. Pray God’s Word back to Him. If He has revealed something to you during this time in His Word, pray about it. Confess if He has revealed some sin that is in your life.
My suggestion is to keep this in a notebook so you can look back on it later and remember where you have been in the Bible, what you have experienced through the word, and how many of your prayers are coming into reality.
