He shows us how to pray with more meaning, thought, and imagination by writing with Scripture as our focus. This method differs from other kinds of prayer forms because it allows us to organize our thoughts and highlight ideas that would otherwise remain unexplored. The concept of praying through writing, based on the Ignatian tradition of exploring images to bring God into personal focus, involves reading Scripture, writing Scripture, and praying Scripture concurrently. By writing our reflections on Scripture, we form a connection between Gods word and its relevance to our lives. We are better able to understand Jesus thoughts, comprehend the meaning of Scripture, and focus on the message of God. Cheyney offers several ways to apply writing to prayer, for example, writing stories, letters, poems, or scripts. A section at the end of the book contains practical applications of the methods discussed in the text.
