If you have never memorized scripture before, we encourage you to start with this plan. The plan gives you a great foundation as you create a new rhythm of memorizing scripture.
One of the most effective systems for memorization is to use the cycling method. It involves you daily working on a new verse while simultaneously working back on previous verses.
Day 1 – Start with your verse
Day 2 – Start with yesterday’s verse and then today’s verse
Day 3+ – Start with yesterday’s verse, then all the old verses together, then the new one.
This cycle will repeat until you feel you have confidence that you have all of these verses down and can then file them away. It is a good practice to pull them out again in 3-4 weeks to go back through them again for long term memory success.
Obviously, the “old verses altogether” stage will soon swell to take the most time of all. That’s exactly the way it should be. Soon your days will be filled with you meditating on scripture day and night!
Break each week up in 5 day sections.
