Lecto Divina

The name “Lectio Divina” is Latin for “Divine Reading”. This practice is not just used for studying Scripture; it is used to hear from God. In Lectio Divina, you allow the scripture to study you as you sit with the text in God’s presence. Lectio Divina creates space for God to speak to you about His word.
