I led a Prayer Workshop this weekend
at Risen Christ Lutheran Church,
Myrtle Beach, VA
with my husband- John.
We shared some books
that have been helpful along the way -
learning about prayer.
One of the first books we read was-
Prayer is about a love relationship with
our Heavenly Father.
Richard Foster shares ideas
about quieting the heart and soul
to listen and obey God better.
Prayer is just a part of the
whole life transformation
that the Holy Spirit is working in each of us.
The Willard- Johnson combination
gives practical application helps along the way.
Mulholland addresses the power
of Holy Scripture in spiritual formation.
A powerful tool is Praying the Scriptures.
Benson brings back a look
at some ancient practices
to help us be aware of the presence of God.
Miller's approach is down-to-earth and practical.
Even our broken and poor offerings of prayer
can be fused to be powerful substance.
We can still connect in a distracting world.
We can move from Ground Zero
in our prayer life.
One of these books just might be the start
of an amazing blessing.
