Thank you to those who attended Prayer Training!

Prayer-roots

Over the weekend about 30 of us got together for a Prayer training workshop. Our time together included a scripture study of Psalm 84, which led to a wonderful discussion about different interpretations of the versus, the beautiful images that the words brought to mind, and how we typically emote feelings of joy, courage and weakness in our own lives.

Next, we discussed prayer ministry, focusing on when it may be appropriate to break into small groups, the advantages (and disadvantages) of dividing men and women for prayer, and when to focus on intercession for one person in the group. We spent some time in small group prayer and also applied what we learned about intercession prayer. Finally, we talked about Spirituality of the Psalms, and took a deeper look at ways the prayers can be categorized, how that makes us feel, and what trials the Psalmists may have faced while writing scripture.
