Prayer & Listening
Most of us have experienced the “laundry list” phase of spiritual life in which praying means giving God an agenda of needs to handle. How do we move to having real conversation with God? How do we hear what God is saying back to us? How can we make our experience of God being with us part of everyday life?
This guide covers the disciplines of prayer and of practicing God’s presence. Going deeper in these areas helps us to draw closer to God in everything we do.
Spiritual disciplines are a time-tested means of connecting us to the God who wants to transform our souls. We discover the disciplines in the Bible as we look at the everyday ways Jesus related to God. This series is designed to help us live in God’s presence by incorporating these spiritual practices into our lives.
