This acrostic helps you remember the elements of how to include Bible Study into your quiet time. You can even use this method alone
as a way to study scripture apart from your daily quiet times.

S = Scripture
Read the Scripture or a passage of Scripture.

O = Observation
How would I explain the Scripture if I was teaching it to someone else? Write it in your own words. Check out any Scripture references
and read them and write them in your own words.

A = Application
What does it mean to me? Meditate on the Scripture. Say it out loud. Apply whatever method helps you to understand what it means to
you and how it applies to your life today.

P = Prayer
Pray for God to give you understanding of how He wants to use this Scripture in your heart and life. Ask Him to help you to hear and
understand His Holy Word. Pause and listen!!! Ask Him to give you direction for the day, for the week, for your life. “Speak Lord!
Your servant is listening!”
