Wisdom Through Prayer - Evening #1: "What Prayer Is ... Why We Pray?"
Sometimes our prayer is an automatic response to a life crisis that suddenly is thrust upon us. And sometimes it's when we wake-up in the morning and we just want to connect to "something" greater than ourselves.
Where does this prayer come from ... and how do we know how to pray? Is there a "God" that is listening to our hearts and soul as they reach out to be soothed?
Hear the personal perspectives about prayer from three different speakers as they share with us their thoughts to the questions: "What is Prayer and Why Do We Pray?"
NOTE: Seating is limited to this public event, so RSVP soon!
