Lord Teach Me To Pray

Lord Teach Me To Pray is a three-part Ignatian prayer series developed in 2001 to meet the desire of men and women for on-going spiritual growth as they respond to the call to holiness and to a deeper commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord.   It was developed as an outreach program to bring the Holy Spirit into our daily lives in facilitated faith-sharing prayer communities, where the Lord, himself, teaches them to pray.   Lord Teach Me To Pray is part of the New Evangelization as understood in the writings and initiatives of Blessed John Paul II, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI and Pope Francis.  The mission of Lord, Teach Me To Pray consists in enabling  men and women to grow in their knowledge and love of Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, thus facilitating their eternal salvation and that of their family.

Lord, Teach Me to Pray is a three-part prayer series.  Part 1, Praying Christian Virtues, helps deepen prayer life, and discover what to do for dryness and obstacles in prayer.  This 12 week prayer series introduces the different methods of Ignatian prayer, meditation, contemplation and Consciousness Examen.  Small groups meet with 2 trained facilitators for 1-2 hours/week to pray and faith share.  In Good Shepherd Parish, Part I (women) will meet in the Rectory Chapel, Thursdays, 9:30 – 11:30 beginning Jan 26th.  Contact Sheila Boyson, 919-995-0506 or sheila.spindel@gmail.com, for more information or to register.  Additional sessions for men and women are available at other Uptown churches.  Please visit the web site, lordteachmetopray.com for the full schedule.
