The practice of prayer is a mystery. As Rev. Sharon Salomons (Sharon 1.0) said at the St Catherine's prayer retreat on February 9th: "That's why its called a practice, because we don't get it right - we need to practice!" Many thanks to Heather Luccock and Sharon 1.0 for facilitating such an inspirational morning.
As we journey together in prayer, there are some ways that we can deepen our prayer lives - both alone and together. Here are some links to some ways to pray that you might like to try:
