“Prayer is an intimate sharing between friends; it means taking time frequently to be alone with Him who we know loves us.” St Teresa of Avila
Do you ever wish that your friendship with God was stronger and your prayer life deeper? That’s true for most Christians most of the time! Jesus’ first followers said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray!”
During the Autumn, Trish Yandell and the prayer team will be running five workshops to help us have a fresh look at prayer and how it can revitalise our friendship with God.
Over the first two evenings we will be exploring how the age old practice of Lectio Divina and the Ignatian practice of imaginative prayer can help us see how the Word of God speaks to us personally through some familiar and not so familiar passages of scripture.
The second two evenings will be exploring prayer as a friendship dialogue with God and the last evening will be a time to be drawn deeper into the heart of God, listening and discovering God's heart for us and the world. Journaling will also be discussed at each of the workshops.
All the sessions will have prayer ministry for those who want to receive it, and art materials for those who want to express their prayers visually.
Much of the content of the course has been used by Trish on quiet days she has run over the last year or so – and which many in our congregation have already found helpful.
Is now the time to renew your prayer life and deepen your walk with God?
Details: Mondays 24 Sept, 8 & 29 Oct, 19 Nov, 3 Dec. Coffee from 7pm. Workshops will run from 7.30 – 9.15pm. Please bring a Bible and notebook to all workshops.
