Praying the Psalms for the “whole Christ" enriches my prayer life. It increases my appreciation for the global church, weakens the grip of individualism, and brings to life Psalms I might otherwise overlook.
I am normally not one to present lists but I believe there is a deepening of appreciation and understanding by reading the 34 countries of origin and 22 countries of citizenship represented at the Seminary this fall.
I wrote this congregational prayer called "Do Not Worry" based on Matthew 6:25-27 for today's church service. This prayer affirms that God has a plan for creation (and for us) in both the sadness and the joy.
It's Ministry Question Monday! Do you have ideas for helping people develop prayer lives that go beyond Sundays?
How do we train and equip people to pray for worship? And how do we prepare those who pray with—and for—others after the service?
All are cordially invited to attend the International School of Prayer on Friday, Sept 25 with Rev. Nam Soo Choi of Korea, the leader of an international prayer movement.
