The Five Seasons of Prayer
This is the topic of our Lenten study series for 2019. We all pray, do it in
many locations and occasions. The most obvious one is when in church. We say prayers
together, we ask for ourselves and on behalf of others, we return thanks and pray for
those who have gone before us and have entered God’s closer presence.
How do we make sense of prayer? Are some prayers more effective, and by the way, when
we say prayers out loud where do they go anyway? For such a well-known part of our church
life, praying is a mystery. We’re going to gather on Wednesdays beginning March 12 at the
church for five sessions about prayer. We’ll study written, sung, silent and corporate prayer
and even write our own.
Come and join us at 12 noon for a 40 minute session. Bring a favorite book of prayers or
just a single prayer . Perhaps you might want to sing a prayer, draw one or just share a
prayer experience. Our session will be followed by lunch next door in the hospitality space
of the Baptist church.
