This presentation, which incorporates imaginative scriptural prayer, can be geared to people of all ages and interests. It’s for those who love the Bible and those wish they did. Scripture is meant to touch our hearts as well as our minds, and during the presentation you'll learn ways to deepen your response to Christ. Through guided imagery you'll enter into the events of Christ’s life and meet him in a new, healing way.
We'll discuss and you'll experience the sacredness of silence, of resting in the Lord. In our deepest relationships, words are often unneeded, interrupting rather than furthering union. We can sit with our closest loved one and absorb their presence. Likewise, we can just enjoy being with God, who says: "Be still and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10).
Teens and adults have had high praise for guided prayer in presentations designed for them. Please see their comments below, as well as Testimonials.
