Bible Reading Resources SOAP Method

https://my.salvos.org.au/toolkit/resource/easy-bible-study-method---soap--individual-or-small-group-method/624/

S.O.A.P. stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. 

It is a way of getting more out of your time in God's Word. The S.O.A.P method of Bible Study (for individuals or small groups) does not require a theology degree or special leadership skills. This method is simple and very easy to reproduce.

The acronym means that anyone can remember and participate in the 4 step process. In using this tool individuals can be convinced that they can read, understand and study God's Word for themselves. The greatest thing about this tool is that we can grow in hearing the voice of God. 

Scripture
Read and write down the scripture as per the verse of the day following this SOAP guide.
Observation
Pray the prayer “God, why did You write this?” Write down what you hear. 
Application
Pray and ask “God how would You like me to apply this verse into my life?” Write down what you hear.
Prayer
Write out a prayer to God based on what you just learned and ask him to help you apply this truth in your life.
