Long Passage Memorization Week 3

Do you have a hard time memorizing verses? Have you ever considered trying to memorize a long passage of verses?










I have picked out Psalm 121. It is 8 verses total. I have broken it down in to two verse chunks for each week. This means, we will be working on memorizing Psalm 121 for 4 weeks. So far, we have worked on Psalm 121:1-2, Psalm 121:3-4 and now we are moving on to Psalm 121:5-6.




Up for the challenge? 






Not sure what supplies you need in order to follow along? Check out this post...



How to Memorize Long Passages




Step 1 ~  Read through all of Psalm 121, out loud, at least one time every day.




Psalm 121 NIV 




I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord , the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord watches over you— the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.




Step 2 ~  Write out (yes, pen and paper) Psalm 121:5-6 . You will write out these verses at least 5 times every day throughout the week.









~~ Why do I believe in writing out the verses at least 4-5 times every day? Check out this post...

Step 3 ~  Write out Psalm 121:5-6 on an index card.




Step 4 ~  As you do random activities, during your day, try to recall Psalm 121:5-6, from memory.




~~  What do I mean by random activities? Like when you are watching tv and a commercial comes on, mute the commercial. Spend that time trying to recall your verses. Or when you are busy with vacuuming the floors, spend those moments recalling your verses. Random activities are things that keep your hands occupied, but your mind is free to recall things like verses.
 If you have trouble remembering something, glance at your index card.









Step 5 ~  When you have spent time with these verses and you start to feel comfortable with them, try to incorporate them into your prayers.




~~  How do you incorporate Psalm 121:5-6 into a prayer?




Prayer: 




Dear Father, 




Thank you for always being with me. Thank you for watching over me. Thank you for being my shade at my right hand. Thank for not allowing the sun to harm me by day, nor the moon by night. Thank you for all that you do. In Jesus' name, Amen.




Psalm 121:5-6 NIV 




The Lord watches over you— the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.




Step 6 ~  Now that you are comfortable with these verses, spend time recalling the first 4 verses plus these verses.





~~  If you have trouble remembering something, glance at your index cards.
