Registration is now open for my online class on prayer for Lent!
It’s called “Focus on Prayer.” Together we’ll learn about and practice three classic ways of praying that will help bring new focus and renewal to your prayer life.
I hope you’ll join us!
No matter what background you come from something here’s bound to be new to you: we will be looking at ways of praying with deep roots in the Reformed tradition of Protestantism, in Eastern Orthodoxy, and in Roman Catholicism.
I taught this class on my own website for the 1st time last year — though I’ve taught this material many times at the seminary level, and in churches, and at conferences and retreats.
We had a lot of fun together.
At least one member of the class described it as “life-changing.”
Each week we’ll do four things together:
- I’ll introduce a way of praying with a short video lecture.
- I’ll point you toward a more complete exploration of that way of praying in my book Kneeling with Giants Learning to Pray with History’s Best Teachers.
- You’ll practice that way of praying for about 15 minutes a day.
- You have the opportunity to find support and accountability, and share and learn from others in a private discussion forum.
It’s a way to become far more focused in your prayer life.
It’s a way to make Lent time of growth in Christ that Lent was made to be.
It’s a way to learn more about the spiritual lives of Christians in other traditions.
It might just be away to find a way of praying that really fits who God made you to be.
You can find out more through the link in the menu at the top of the page.
