It’s said that prayer is so primal an urge for humankind that we’re born into the world praying. Yet, something so natural and seemingly so easy comes hard sometimes. The Way of Prayer is a 10-week small group study about the nature, practice and results of prayer. Some forms of prayer arise in our lives spontaneously, some are learned by rote and others are stumbled upon as we move through life.

Honor the ways you were taught to pray while expanding your understanding to include new ways to pray in this seventh title in the Companions in Christ series. Topics covered include:

  • How do you pray?
  • Images of God
  • Praying by heart
  • Praying with music
  • Praying by gazing
  • Praying with our bodies
  • Scriptural prayer
  • Contemplative prayer
  • Praying with and for others
  • Prayer and social transformation
