Memorizing Scripture

Recommended Posts

Hi My SIC & BIC!!!!(Sisters In Christ & Brothers In Christ)


I was just wondering if you guys had any good techniques that helped you with memorizing scripture. I'm very bad at memorizing things and I try so hard but, I seem to focus on more of the meat of the story and really understanding the story versus memorizing scripture. I've been praying about this as well.

I memorize scripture the old way. I write down the verse. I set a time to sit down and I just repeat the words over and over out loud. Line by line, sometimes I walk around in my room. I don't stop until I get it. I have favorite scriptures which I collected over the year and I have not memorized them maybe I should....you have inspired me flower

That's what works for me as well. Also, adding the scripture in my prayers as soon as I've decided that I want to memorize it is helpful too...

I homeschooled my son 12 years and helped him memorize hundreds of verses of scripture. The best technique we found was to put the verses to music--sometimes the songs were really silly like "Row, Row your Boat" and once the Holy Spirit gave me a complete song for Psalm 121. Bible book stores often have music like this if you're not comfortable composing your own. Thy Word Creations (David and Alice Meyer) have a high-pitched song for 1 Corinthians 13 that made that chapter stick in my mind in about 15 minutes and years later it's still there!
Writing and rewriting a verse helps too. Just work at it consistently--put the scripture on little index cards , take them with you and look at them whenever you have a free moment--standing in line, traffic jams, whatever. Memorizing does get easier with time. Hope this helps.

Deborah, that was exactly what I was going to write thumbs

There are so many praise and worship songs based on the scripture and singing those songs is the same thing as declaring the Word but with the music and an anointed music. It helped me a lot, for instance, Judy Jacob's has the song Isaiah 61 or Fred Hammond's They that wait upon the Lord. I mean there are tons of songs which can suit your situation or depending the scripture you want to memorize.

Here is what I usually do - I google a certain lyric and read/sing it with the song, then close it and try to sing the song by heart. Or if I can not find the lyrics, I try to sing the lyrics after the singer and then do it together with him/her.

Little index cards are awesome too

Mrs W-it depends on your personal learning style which will be easiest for you
first find out what it is (google learning styles free test)
choose and take a free test online
if it is auditory-play the Bible on the internet so you hear it
if it is visual-write out verses so you see them
kinesthetic-walk around reciting verses
hope this helps
teacher in training!
