Lord, Teach Me to Pray is a three-part prayer series, rooted in Ignatian spirituality and designed to help women and men learn how to pray. The three parts are taken in succession. Each part is a prerequisite for the next part.
This is a 12-week program that introduces Ignatian prayer and spirituality in the way that St. Ignatius himself introduced people; i.e., by structuring their initial prayer experience around the Christian Virtues—which Saint Ignatius used to re-enforce each participants’ prayer life. Sessions are conducted in a small group experience with two trained facilitators.
Each group will meet for one to two hours, once a week for prayer, faith sharing and introduction to the methods of Ignatian prayer. Everyone will receive Scriptures on the virtues to use in prayerful reading daily at home for 15 minutes of private prayer.
