10Rs to Memorize Scripture

MEMORIZATION METHOD OUTLINE

Memorize 2 verses of a passage or book of the Bible a weekday

5 minutes in the Morning and 5 minutes in the Evening (if necessary)

MORNING – 5 MINUTES

1. Read the verse allowed 3 times.

2. Resaythe verse out loud once with out looking at the scriptures (1x). Do not worry if you do not have it perfect.  You perfect your verses in your reviewing process.

3. write the verse on paper or card once. Make sure you write it exactly.

4. Reread the verse you wrote 3 times.

5. Recite it from memory (1x).  Remember do not worry if it is perfect.  Just say it the best you can and go on and memorize the next verse.  The perfection of your memorization will come in your review.

6. Rehearse all of the verses you have learned that day from memory the best you can 3 times.  Again do not get hung up on perfection here.

7. Repeat steps 1-5 for the next verse. If done memorizing new verses for the day go to step 8.

8. Render the past 5 days verses from memory; which I call my “Current Window” of verses.  If just starting out just review all the verses you have memorized so far.


NIGHT – 5 MINUTES (if necessary)

9. Restate the past 5 days verses from memory; which I call my “Current Window” of verses.  If just starting out just review all the verses you have memorized so far.  (This can be omitted if the morning rendering (#8) is sufficient for you.)


WEEKEND

10. Review: During the weekends you can review all of the book or passage you are memorizing. Not just the 10 current verses.


ASSUMPTIONS

  • Memorize Monday – Friday and take the weekends off.  Use weekend only for review.
  • The net effect of this memorizing system is to have (once you have gone past 5 days) 10 current verses in this case (your “Current Window” of verses) that you are reviewing each day.
  • You can increase the number of verses you are memorizing as it becomes easier. You can become better and better at memorizing where 2 verses will be too easy.  You can adapt this method to any number of verses you are memorizing per week.
  • Use normally unproductive time to review what you have memorized, such as while waiting in lines, or falling asleep.
