Tools for Meditation
Below are a list of wonderful tools for meditation that can help you meditate on God. Information on Lectio Divina, meditation timer, links to other Christian meditation organizations, and more can help you connect with God and yourself through meditation and prayer.
A method of prayer practiced by Christians throughout the ages and preserved by the Benedictine order is called Lectio Divina, meaning divine reading of sacred scripture, particularly the Bible, for the purpose of listening to God for a personal word or phrase. The practice of Lectio Divina is not necessarily to seek guidance on a specific issue, not to gather information, not to expand one’s theological base, not to buttress or refute an argument, but rather to make our selves available to God without an agenda, to let go.
