Pray Your Sermon Into Being with Backstory Preaching

Backstory Preaching has generously allowed SFF to share their guide for how to make your sermon prep a spiritual respite through the daily practice of Lectio Divina.

Download this PDF to organize your sermon prep and pray your sermon into being.

Lisa at Backstory also says:  “[I]f you haven’t already, I encourage you to make appointments each day during Holy Week for at least two hours. Write on your calendar,

One hour for prayer, and a second hour for sermon prep through lectio divina.

Protect and guard that time with God as a gift to yourself, those you serve, and for the proclamation of the Gospel.

And as a result, your sermon prep will become more respite than work. Enjoy the process of discerning God’s Word for your people!”
