Reading Better And Understanding More
    Personally, I have had a lot of difficulties in reading and especially reading aloud.  Sometimes I would skip words, substitute words for what is written, or even add words that were not written there.  God has given me the following method of practice that has helped me tremendously.  The scriptural principle is, "For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little"  (Isaiah 28:10).  We learn through association.  Our mind works much like a computer search.  One can type the first few letters of a file name and all the files which start with those letters show up on the screen. I believe that more people would read the Bible, if they could learn to read better and understand more.

Instructions: When reading aloud, take the time to look at and recognize the first letter of each word as you read.  Look at the following example in the verse:

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

               The letters are H, t, d, i, t, s, p, o, t, m, H, s, a, u, t, s, o, t, A
Now try reading the following verses using this method:

Psalm 91:1-16

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
