Contemplative Prayer & Scripture
The Purpose of this series …
is to awaken in our Heart and mind and soul
the words of Jesus, as revealed in scripture,
through Contemplative Prayer & Meditation.
Be still and know …
(Created for a Prayer Group for September through December, 2019)
Here is a sermon "Our Heart is Our Treasure" that was given at The Church of the Holy Spirit in Portland, ME on August 11, 2019 which also includes a guided process. We are reflecting on scripture from Luke 12:32-40. This sermon sets the context for this contemplative prayer series:
"Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."
This is the guided meditation taken from the above sermon:
A workbook that was used in a weekly Prayer group. Each week's lesson includes scripture and an application of the use of Contemplative Prayer in one's daily prayer time.
