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. 

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. Make note of any verses,word or sentence 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. There are four fields to fill in and I bet you can guess what they are: 

 Scripture: type in the verse or verses word or sentence that jumped out to you in your reading. 

 Observation: What did you observe about the scripture that stands out to  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. 

That's all there is to it!
