Learning to Pray
The Learning to Pray class offers an opportunity to expand your prayer life so you might get to know God better and draw God’s presence deeper into your life. Most of us know how to approach God with our litany of needs, but most of us have struggled with learning to listen for God and how to deepen our relationship with God. The purpose of prayer is to have a dialogue with God so God can get to know you and you can get to know God. In short, it is through prayer that we draw closer to God with an intimate knowledge of who God is and God’s care for each of us.
Based on this very basic human desire to know God, a nine week course was developed that provides a framework to guide each of us into a deeper more meaningful relationship with God.
The Learning to Pray course runs for 8 weeks starting several times a year. It is built around small groups of 5-6 people per group, each with its own trained leader to guide you. The initial two meetings will be all of us together then we will break up for 6 weeks of experiential learning, followed by a closing meeting with all of us together again. The small groups will meet for 1 hour per week at a time agreed to by the group.
