You may think you know all about prayer. You went to Sunday school and memorized The Lord’s Prayer. You learned to say grace before meals. Today you say a prayer in times of need and, if you remember, in times of gratitude. It may be time to unlearn what you’ve been taught and reject what you’ve assumed so you can truly understand prayer and how it’s a central, powerful part of your spiritual pilgrimage.
Prayer is a time to be in intimate communion with God. It gives us a chance to be aware of the constant presence of God, a receptive state where listening is just as important as asking.
“In prayer we essentially surrender ourselves to God,” Youngman writes in this third volume of The Way of Pilgrimage. “We give up total control of our lives. On this pilgrimage we have to refocus our heart to see God everywhere. Prayer is a way to refocus our spiritual eyes.”
Discover how to better connect to the heart of God by looking at creative new ways to pray, as well as discovering some ancient methods of prayer. Learn how to overcome the common barriers that block our ability to listen to God.
A Leader’s Guide, covering all 5 volumes in The Way of Pilgrimage series, is also available.
