Right now I'm working on a devotion. In case any of you are interested in learning to write a devotion, here are the basic parts.
- Scripture that relates well to your reflection
- Body of Devotion: Personal reflection on God/scripture/prayer. Share an experience or moment that drew you closer to God.
- Prayer that relates well to your reflection.
- Thought for the Day
Each publisher will have their own specific guidelines (word count, format, etc.), but this gives you a quick look at the basics.
One publisher of devotions is Upper Room. These devotions are just 250 words each. Check out Upper Room Sample (devotions start on page 8-9) and Upper Room Writer Guidelines.
