“Prayer is being on terms of friendship with God, frequently conversing in secret with Him, who we know, loves us.” St. Theresa of Avila.
God loves us unconditionally, he knows us intimately, and wants to be in a relationship with us. Like any other deep friendship, we cultivate it by communicating. We are all unique, and the way that we best communicate with others varies. Our Catholic Church recognizes this and gives us a rich and vast ways to pray.
During this session we will experience the three forms of prayer: vocal, Christian Meditation, and contemplative prayer. We will be looking at practical ways to cultivate our own personal prayer as well as our students. Areas of prayer include traditional prayers, Lectio and Visio Divina, Praying in Color and Bible Journaling.
This session is not only experiential, where you will have the opportunity to practice various forms of prayer, but you will also have resources that you can use in your school and classroom.
