Finding Intimacy with God
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?
Our next Bible Study called “Prayer: Finding Intimacy with God” starts Thursday November 12th online! Two times available (10:30am or 7:00pm), it’s free & there is no registration!
Join us as Dr. 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, opening our hearts and minds to scripture as the means to hear God and respond in conversation, basking in his presence and resolving to live in and through his love.
Learn how Lectio Prayer enables you to enter into a dialogue with God. This prayerful reading of Sacred Scripture is a proven means to encounter God in daily life and will benefit those new to prayer and the experienced alike.
