4 Tips to Improve Your Bible Study
Follow the strategies below to get the most out of the teachings found in the Bible.
1. You don’t have to start at the beginning

2. Begin your study with prayer
Open by addressing God. Then ask Him for wisdom and understanding as you read. Ask for specific guidance. When you’re done, end your prayer “in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.” Click here to learn more about how to pray.
