It has been said that "Prayer is falling in love with God, over and over again.” In our age of turmoil and constant change, we need to cultivate an ongoing, interactive relationship with the one who created us. This not only includes being able to express and share our joys and concerns, but also to be available to hear God’s voice — the voice that guides us; the voice that reminds us we are deeply loved and there’s nothing we can do to change that.
During this six week course we will read, practice and reflect on chapters from Richard Foster’s book Prayer: Finding the Heart’s True Home. You will need access to a copy of the book during this class. We won’t cover every chapter, but there will be opportunity for each of you to veer off the course structure to explore new ways of listening and responding to the heartbeat of God.
