LET US PRAY...
DISCUSSIONS THURSDAY at 7pm ONLY on Zoom (here)
Though prayer is one of the essentials of a thriving faith, we often feel as if we’re talking to ourselves. Or, worse, we feel like we’re talking to no one at all. How can something so vital to the faith be so elusive? In Prayer: Finding Intimacy with God Dr. Tim Gray masterfully uses the ancient Church's tradition of lectio divina to show you the simple steps for making prayer an effort of love and intimacy with God.
Are you signed up for FORMED? CLICK on PRAYER image above to go to the video and study guide download (under videos.)
