a new SOAP

Wayne Corderio shared an acronym that he uses for his devotions.

S = scripture, try to follow a reading plan
O = observations of the scripture that was read
A = application, how does this apply to my life
P = prayer, what do I need to pray about.

Wayne uses a 20-20-20-20 model. He does this in a small group setting. 20 minutes of scripture reading, 20 minutes of writing down personal observations, 20 minutes of making applications, 20 minute of prayer. He said it takes discipline to do 40 minutes in silence in a group of people, but it is a valuable time growing. He makes journals that can be purchased that are written based on this SOAP outline.
