SOAP, is an acronym that stands for Scripture, Observation, Application, and Prayer. Through SOAP, you will learn more about who God is, His love for you, and His heart for the world. By reading the Bible daily, our hope is that you will discover next steps, keep on the right path and be inspired as you follow Jesus.
Take your time reading each chapter and allow God to speak to you. Look for a verse that particularly spoke to you and write it in your journal.

Personalize what you have read, by asking yourself how it applies to your life right now. Write how this scripture can apply to you today.
This can be as simple as asking God to help you use this scripture, or it may be a greater insight on what He may be revealing to you. Remember, prayer is a two-way conversation, so be sure to listen to what God has to say and journal about it.
