Exploring Prayer Class
“You learn to pray by praying.”
This phrase, which I heard years ago, are the clearest words about learning how to pray I have ever heard. Linda Guite embodies the wisdom of this directive. Linda has learned to live by learning to pray—by connecting with God and finding in that connection and communication the strength and wisdom and peace to navigate life.
When I first heard that Linda was feeling called to put together a course on prayer, I got very excited. I knew it was a step of faith for her; and I knew it was going to be good. One of the things that greatly burdened Linda was hearing from many at church, “I hardly pray at all; I don’t know how to pray.” The Lord prompted Linda to share some of her journey and lessons in prayer.
The title for this four-week class is Exploring Prayer. In the first session we will begin exploring our relationship with God. The next class will be learning about how to follow God’s direction in prayer. Session three will explore different types of prayer for different situations and needs. The final session will incorporate “practice” in small groups in order to grow relationships and to experience prayer together. The goal of the class is to go deeper in our prayer life with the Lord. To update, revisit, or begin the greatest journey into the many facets of prayer.
The four-week class begins Monday, June 6 and will meet on Mondays in the Cafe from 7:00 pm-8:30 pm. You can learn more about the class and sign up at the Welcome Center after service on May 29 or June 5; or you can call or email the church office. 860-225-0661 x135, office@Wellspring.net
