Matthew 28:19, 20 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

1 Corinthians 6:19, 20 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”

It helps a lot, and maybe is the best way, to memorize listening to music, specially if the music is word for word, verbatim. There is a band that has the Bible in songs, and it’s unique in that the author has been working in the songs for over 35 years and have a high quality. This is the website: http://www.abunoahiii.com

It helps me much to know the truths that Jesus Christ taught to us. I believe that Christ is in me all the time, wherever I go, He is with me.

Hi Gino Fenandes – I know your comment is a few years old, but were you able to receive funds to help you memorize scripture? Thank you to this site and comments for all the encouragement in Christ’s name! I personally find these verses very helpful: Philippians 4:7 (KJV) “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” and verse 13: “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Take care, and God bless brothers and sisters!

Here are some more verses:

John 1:29 ¶ The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

Acts 17:25 Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;

Romans 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

2 Peter 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

One method of memorizing is to read over the passage twice a day for a month, thinking about what you are reading.
