Ways of Praying:
The Grace of Prayer
“Lord teach us to pray.” (Luke 11:1)
The Church, both East and West, has a rich tradition of different ways of Praying. As many people today search to deepen their faith, with a real desire for encounter with God in Jesus Christ, it is important that Christians experience some of this richness and find the way that best helps them. No two people have the same relationship with God.
This course will give a background to some of these ways of praying, but will focus primarily on learning through doing and reflecting on that experience. The basic text will be the Scriptures.
