There is no better time than Lent to explore prayer as a way to grow our faith and strengthen our ministry. We know we need an ongoing, intimate connection with God. Without it, faith stagnates and ministry leads to burnout. Sadly, many Christians know only one way to pray, and if that way leaves them dry they assume prayer itself is not for them. Each of us needs a prayer life that really fits–and this webinar is designed to help you find one.

Over the centuries Christians have developed a rich variety of ways to draw close in prayer. If we understand our own needs and understand how different ways of praying can help us grow, we are on the way to thriving. We will look at three very different kinds of prayer, and you will be prepared at the end to take up one of them as a life-giving Lenten practice.

Participants will:

  • More  clearly see the place of prayer in vital faith and thriving ministry.
  • Come to understand the kinds of spiritual needs different forms of prayer address and discern which ones are most pressing in their own lives.
  • Be equipped to take up a new practice of prayer to make Lent a season of spiritual growth.
