The most popular spiritual tool for personal prayer among Christians is the Bible. Yet, very few people have learned how to incorporate Sacred Scripture into their personal prayer time in a way that is relational and deeply meaningful. Well, now there's help!
This online retreat offers an introduction to three styles of praying with Scripture--lectio divina, imaginative prayer, and the prayer of consideration, with details and directions on how to apply them to your prayer time. You'll be provided with everything you need--videos teaching you about each style of prayer and meditation guides for your personal prayer time.
