It's said that prayer is so primal an urge for humankind that we're born into the world praying. Yet, something so natural and seemingly so easy comes hard sometimes. The Way of Prayer is a 10-week small group study about the nature, practice and results of prayer. People with different temperaments, spiritual types, and learning styles will each find expressions of prayer that draw them closer to God. They will also learn to integrate body, mind, and spirit in prayer and to live a more creative rhythm between the inner life and the outward journey of service.
The Participant's Book has a weekly article that introduces new material and five daily exercises to help pa rticipants reflect on their lives in light of the article's content. An important part of this process involves keeping a personal journal. The daily exercise commitment is about thirty minutes. The weekly meeting includes time for reflecting on the past week's exercises, for moving into deeper experiences of spiritual growth, and for engaging in group experiences of worship.
