Prayer - Seeking the Divine
While in many ways this series will be introductory and seek to cover some of the basics regarding prayer, our goal will be to look deeply into our own hearts and lives around the practice of prayer. For Jesus the real test of our spiritual authenticity and integrity is our prayer life. Author and pastor Tim Keller notes, “ Many people will pray when they are required by cultural or social expectations, or perhaps by the anxiety caused by troubling circumstances. Those with a genuinely lived relationship with God as Father, however, will inwardly want to pray and therefore will pray even though nothing on the outside is pressing them to do so.” So this series will involve introspect and meditation, challenging practical ideas and practices, and, we pray, an overall, deeper, richer understanding and practice of this mysterious reality called prayer.
