Item description for The Way of Prayer, Leaders Guide (Companions in Christ) by Marjorie J. Thompson & Jane E. Vennard...
Overview The Way of Prayer expands on our knowledge of prayer through a ten-week exploration of different forms of prayer practices. Through this exploration, small-group members embark on a journey of genuine discovery-the discovery of different dimensions of God's grace and love. Prayer is explored through music, dance, gazing, silence, or acts of service. The Way of Prayer teaches us how to respond to God's invitation into the divine Presence, and it brings a deeper sense of spiritual vitality and encouragement to seek out new ways to pray. Following a prepatory meeting, the weekly explorations include: How do you Pray? Images of God? Praying by Heart Praying with Music Praying by Gazing Praying with Our Bodies Scriptural Prayer Contemplative Prayer Praying with and for Others Prayer and Social Transformation A 10 week resource designed to help people expand their understanding of the nature and practice of prayer. Offers many forms to explore and practice, both individually and as a group. Learn how 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.
