Item description for Meditative Prayer: Entering God's Presence (Spiritual Formation Study Guides) by Richard Peace & Ed Cyzewski...
Overview Spiritual disciplines are simple ways to open ourselves to God. They help us become aware of the many ways God speaks to us and gives us ways to respond to Him. This series explores and explains how use of the disciplines can deepen both our walk with God and our community with other believers.
Publishers Description OUR PRAYERS SHOULD GO AS DEEP AS OUR SOULS.In today's society we are often handicapped in our spiritual growth by too narrow a horizon when it comes to spiritual practices. Each generation suffers a kind of collective amnesia, forgetting the practices and perspectives that nourished countless followers of Christ in centuries past. Rediscovering these skills is one way to respond to our culture's-and our own-deep spiritual hunger. While it is surely preposterous for us to suppose we can interact with the God of this universe, Scripture repeatedly invites us to do that very thing. Prayer is not a minor idea tucked into the cracks of the text, it is central, normative, and expected. Why is it, then, that our prayers are so often dry and difficult? In Meditative Prayer, you'll discover ways of prayer that make use of your mind and imagination, that address your needs as well as strengthen your spirit. By drawing from a number of different sources-Scripture, wise men and women who have gone before, and one another-this study guide will enable your soul to drink deeply from the inexhaustible well of prayer. (Though you can use this guide for a personal journey of prayer, it is ideally suited for exploration with a small group of like-minded friends.)
