Many of us struggle to pray regularly and with confidence amid our everyday lives. Oftentimes, this is because we don’t know how to pray when we encounter the diverse challenges, obstacles, and opportunities in our homes, workplaces, churches, and communities. We are not alone in this struggle! One of Jesus’s own disciples asked him: “Lord, teach us how to pray.” In response, Jesus gave his disciples what is known as the Lord’s Prayer: a powerful pattern of prayer that has been used by God’s people throughout the ages to pray to our loving Heavenly Father.
In this Venn Short Course, Praying the Prayer of Jesus: Inhabiting the fullness of the Lord’s Prayer for the whole of life, you will have the opportunity to explore the pattern of prayer that Jesus gave to his disciples, and to learn to pray alongside others. You will consider what it looks like to worship and serve God in every aspect of your life, to seek the reign of God for the good of your communities, to ask for God’s daily provision, to practice forgiveness, and to resist evil. This thoughtful and practical two-day Short Course will offer teaching, worship and prayer, reflective exercises, and rich discussion, to help you grow in prayer and your relationship with God.
We hope you can join us for this Venn Short Course as we explore the Lord’s Prayer and how to pray throughout all of life.
