A Bible Memory Plan for Busy People

The following Bible memory strategy is based on a method developed by Dr. Andrew Davis in his booklet, An Approach to the Extended Memorization of Scripture.

With this method, weekly Fighter Verses can be easily memorized and retained with an investment of about ten to fifteen minutes each week. If you have a few more minutes to spare you can retain hundreds of previously memorized verses.

Sunday

Read this week’s memory passage with surrounding verses so you can see it in its context. Ask the Lord to help you commit this passage to memory, apply it to your life and use it to bless others.

Monday

Read this week’s passage (with the reference) aloud ten times. Cover the passage and try to say it aloud (with its reference) ten more times, peeking if you have to. Say each memorized passages from previous weeks one time aloud with references.

Tuesday

Cover this week’s passage and try to say the verse aloud (with its reference) ten more times, peeking if you have to. Say each memorized passage from previous weeks one time aloud with references.

Wednesday-Saturday

Say this week’s passage and each memorized passage from previous weeks one time aloud with references.

Review

Repeat memorized passages at least once daily for at least 50 days. After that once every week or two.

Pray daily asking the Lord to help you keep His word to remain in you and use it to feed your soul and minister to others.

Take advantage of passing “idle” moments during the day to call this week’s passage to mind.
