Grow in Your Prayer Life

Terri’s Prayer Book Club

I happen to be one of “those” people! You know the type — at the close of each year, we think back over the year coming to an end and take stock of where we are, where we would like to be and the areas we would like to grow in the coming year. Then we begin to make resolutions!

One of my resolutions for 2022 is a year-long focus on growing in prayer, and I invite you to join me in this journey to grow in our prayer life. One way to help us to grow in our prayer life is to spend time reading from wonderfully-gifted prayer warriors and allowing their wisdom to teach us and inspire us. And that is why I’m introducing Terri’s Prayer Book Club.

Every month we will join together reading a specific book about prayer. Some of the books will be recent and others will be by saints who have long since passed. We will have a variety of books, so if you have a favorite, please feel free to send a suggestion. I have a stack of books sitting on my shelf that I am considering but am certainly open to suggestions.

There will be an opportunity at the end of each month to join together on a Zoom chat to share what we found helpful and how our prayer life is growing. Registration is not required, but if you would like to register to be a part of the prayer reading group, you will receive periodic emails highlighting what we are reading. Choose to read all the books, or read just one — it is totally up to you, so join in as you are able. And invite others, whether they are a part of our church or community or in another church or another community. We are the body of Christ, regardless of where we live and worship.

I’m looking forward to this journey with you!
Rev. Terri Henkel
