Spiritual Formation

Today, I had the privilege of introducing two people who would be working together at the
bookstore. I thought they would have a lot in common, but they ended up talking about many topics that seemed to help the other. It was as if God had put the two together and I knew they would be a good team.
Later in the day, I had another thought about being on a good team.
As I drove home, my mind switched to a new Bible study I was working on for January; Prayers for
Crisis and Inner Healing. I remembered being introduced to prayer meditation several years ago during a difficult time in my life. I found it to be a new way to communicate with God, sometimes without words, sometimes with art, and sometimes as I walked, and always with a listening ear tuned into His responses to my feelings. I began to realize God’s role as “friend” was more true that I could have imagined. And I became more in tune to God’s heart than ever before. I like to think the combination of prayer and meditation has helped God and me become a better team than
ever before.
So, I want to invite everyone who can, to come to the new Bible study Prayers for Crisis and Inner
Healing on either, Wednesday nights, beginning January 2, from 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m., or Thursday
afternoons, beginning January 17, from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. The first study is taken from the scripture I Thessalonians 5:17, “Pray without ceasing.” And Psalm 145:1, 2, 5, “I will exalt you, my God and King, and praise your name forever and ever, I will praise you every day; yes, I will praise you forever….I will meditate on your majestic, glorious splendor and your wonderful miracles.” Come learn how to create a breath prayer that will help you combine a name or characteristic of God with a deep need from your heart. If you can’t come to either of the meetings, let me know and I can share the notes with you. God is on your team and is ready to help you learn how to become more and more aware of His presence and blessings.
