Manual Memorization Methods and Tips 

-Read the verse out loud one time for every word in the verse. If there are ten words in the verse, read it ten times. 

- Write the verse out by hand. Writing it out will cement the Scripture into your memory. You can write one verse out multiple times on a sheet of paper. You can also write it out on an index card with the Scripture text on one side and the Scripture reference on the other side. Create these flash cards so that you can take them with you anywhere you go to assist you with your memorization and review.

-Record yourself reading the verse and play it back to yourself on your mp3 player.  

-Sing the verse. if a tune is available or you can create one

The 15 repetition method.  Break the verse down into smaller portions (phrases or sentences). Say the first phrase fifteen times without looking at the verse. Say the second phrase fifteen times. Now add the second phrase to the first phrase and say them both fifteen times without looking at the verse. Say the third phrase fifteen times and then add it to the first two and say them all fifteen times without looking. Keep doing this until you can say the entire verse fifteen times without looking. This method takes a little bit of time, but you will have no problem memorizing or recalling verses if you use this method.

Review every day. Reviewing what you have already memorized is absolutely critical to your long term recall of memorized Scripture. It is very important that you have someone listen to you quote the verses and make sure they correct you when you miss a word. The more accurately you memorize and review, the more likely you will be to remember these verses for the rest of your life.
