Guided Lectio Divina from the Journey Center

Lectio Divina Introduction

“Read with a vulnerable heart. Expect to be blessed in the reading. Read as one awake, one waiting for the Beloved. Read with reverence.” -Macrina Wiederkehr

"Lectio Divina" is Latin for "spiritual reading" or "holy reading". It is the ancient prayer practice that allows us to encounter the Living God through His written Word.

When we practice Lectio Divina, we are saying to God… "Here I am. I am listening. I want You to speak into my life, for I know that when You do, I will be helped, healed and changed.“

In Lectio Divina, we come with an open heart and without an agenda… this allows God to do His work in us, as He chooses.
