Our Journey Into a Deeper Faith Through Prayer
This workshop will be about prayer for all of us Christians, and particularly married couples, as we journey through our lives with its joys, struggles, sadness and even doubts about God’s presence in the difficult times as well as our over involvement in worldly pursuits. We may intellectually believe in God but be spiritually empty. Then one day, we experience the joy of discovering that the Holy Spirit has always been there, moving us to a deeper understanding of our life’s purpose.
