A simple way to get more from your time in God's word  
What is S.O.A.P.?
S.O.A.P. stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. It is a way of getting more out of your time in God's word. We did not invent it, we just decided to make a website to make it easier to do.

How does it work?
It's quite simple. When you sit for your daily quiet time read the bible as you normally would with one simple difference. Underline or make note of any verses that jump out at you with special significance. This is the basis for diving deeper and using S.O.A.P.

Now comes the cool part. Login and create a new SOAP entry. There are four fields to fill in and I bet you can guess what they are:

 Scripture Type in the verse or verses that stuck out to you in your reading. You can show the verses and even have them read to you with the click of a button. No copying and pasting blocks of text.

 Observation What did you observe about the scripture that struck you. This can be one sentence or a whole book.

 Application How can you apply the observation so that it affects your life today.

 Prayer Write out a prayer to God based on what you just learned and ask him to help you apply this truth in your life.

Thats all there is to it!

Others on S.O.A.P.  
It's a great way to delve more deeply into your Bible reading, and record your thoughts, emotions and connections when studying scripture. S.O.A.P. is meant to be a journal you create with your regular Bible reading, using the process as you read each day, but it can also be an effective tool to help you connect with particular passages.

..last night all we needed was a simple method of encountering God in the scriptures together. SOAP did it for us. I call SOAP an adaptive method. It's flexible and reproducible. According to Bob Logan, adaptive methods empower ordinary people to do extraordinary things.

One such tool is called 'journaling' and consists of systematic daily bible reading, along with writing a journal following the acronym S.O.A.P. KLOVE.com
