There are patterns in the passages that are just waiting to be discovered–or invented. Look for the types of patterns below, or come up with your own!
For example, “the Town of Nazareth in Galilee” – T, O, N, G spells “tong,” like how you “ting a tong.” (Remember, memory triggers don’t need to make sense: they just need to be memorable!)
For example, the fruit of the spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Notice there are nine fruits. The first three are one-syllable, the second three are two-syllable, and the third three are three-syllable. (It’s as easy as 1-2-3.)
For example, you might keep Nehemiah 6:5 straight by remembering the “s” sounds throughout it. “Then, the fifth time, Sanballat sent his aide to me with the same message, and in his hand was an unsealed letter.” The address is chapter six, verse five (which is sitting by six). It may sound dopey, but it works!
It’s a fact that some people learn best by being active. For those individuals, this technique is a must. However, even if you’re more of a visual or auditory learner, adding an element of movement to your toolkit can help round out your memorization, not to mention make it more fun!
Try going for a walk in the same location each time you practice your script. By doing this, you will build associations (memory cues!) between geographical landmarks and the different sections of your passage.
There was a man, for instance, who walked around a lake as he memorized Psalm 139:1-12. As he went along, he related each passage to a feature of the environment. Verses 1-3 were recited in a sunny spot, verses 4-6 were across from a young tree located on an island in the lake, verses 7-12 near a cave, and so on.
When the time came for this passage to be recited in front of an audience, the man could still visualize his “recitation walks” around the lake, as well as the passages associated with each landmark along the path.
With the Verses Bible Memory app, your spare moments can quickly be turned into meaningful times of memorization. The app allows you to choose any passage of scripture and play a variety of memory games which will help you master the script more quickly. We highly recommend you check it out and download it on your device.
