In the Lectio Divina Method of Prayer, there are four parts. They usually follow each other but they need not. The Spirit can direct one to any part at any time. The four parts are (1) Reading (Lectio) (2) Meditation (Meditatio) (3) Prayer (Oratio) and (4) Contemplation (Contemplatio). The aim of the method self awareness and awareness of God. In this method of prayer we are all disciples and so must learn to listen to God who is the teacher par excellence.
