10 Distinct Pictures of Christian Reflective Prayer

By James W. Goll
The Lord is truly revealing fresh insights into these ancient truths. As you know, books have often been my mentors in my journey in live and ministry. The following is a combination of gleanings of years of research and time just spent with the Father.  
  1. The David Model: Considering God’s Creation and Might

    From the Life of David
    Imagine as the shepherd boy David spent many nights under the stars; looking, gazing, pondering, musing on creation and God the Creator. Creation is where most all of us first encounter God. The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament shows His handwork (Ps. 19). Before people first read about God in the Scriptures, they tend to learn about our heavenly Father through nature. Consider the rainbow – a sign of God’s covenant after the great flood (Gen. 9:13). Study the David Model to meditate on the splendor and majesty of God.

    Scripture Passages on God’s Majesty
    1. Job 37:1-24
    2. Psalms 8:1-8
    3. Psalm 19:1-4
    4. Psalm 29:1-11
    5. Psalm 39:1-13
    6. Psalm 90:1-17
    7. Isaiah 40:1-31
    8. Isaiah 44:1-45
  2. The Mary Model: Pondering the Person of Jesus

    From Mary – The Mother of Jesus
    Can you begin to imagine what Mary pondered on? Just think – the Son of God growing inside of you. You feel His heart beat; you feel His foot move; you bring Him to birth! Truly, one of closest people ever to Jesus was His Mother Mary. Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart. (Luke 2:19). She knew Him better than anyone, yet just like us, she wanted to know Him still better. Mary becomes our example of what it means to really know Christ – to come into intimacy with the lover of our soul. Let’s join in her model of meditating on the person of Christ Jesus.

    Scripture Passages on the Person of Jesus
    1. Matthew 1:18 – 2:23
    2. Matthew 3:13 – 4:11
    3. Matthew 9:35 – 10:7
    4. Matthew 16:13 – 17:13
    5. Luke 2:42 – 52
    6. Luke 24:1-53
    7. John 1:1-18
    8. John 2:1-12
    9. John 13:1-35
    10. John 19:1-42
    11. Philippians 2:2-12
    12. Hebrews 5:5-14
    13. Revelation 1:9-20
    14. Revelation 19:11-16
