Road Map for Prayer Journey Apr 25, 2005
Doucet has prepared a 15-week program of daily spiritual exercises focused on healing and adaptable to both individual and group use. The Group Workshop section provides detailed suggestions for getting started, setting ground rules, and using the sessions in community.
Daily sessions contain an opening quote from a contemporary author or from scripture, a brief personal reflection by the author, questions for reflection or journal writing, and a closing prayer. Early sessions focus on basics for beginning a prayer journey, but even those with a well developed prayer practice would benefit from a review of such exercises as the spiritual checkup and developing a personal lifeline. Healing is addressed directly in Week Nine, which reflects on scripture passages on the hemmorrhagic woman, the sick man Jesus cured on the Sabbath, the woman at the well, and Zacchaeus.
In each daily session, Doucet relates the gospel to life in today's world. She also touches on such issues as anger, depression, and negativity while emphasizing God's boundless love and the light of the Spirit.
