What is Prayer? . . .

This 7-week series is intended to help you discover one or two new ways to connect with God. Through brief videos, live interviews and engagement with Scripture, we we will hear a different answer to the question each Sunday: “What is Prayer?”

As we all adopt different rhythms in the summer, I invite you to consider setting aside 5, 10 or 15 minutes every day to explore one way of communing with the God who loves you.

Not sure where to start? The videos and zoom gatherings this summer will help! Or consider picking up one of the following books to guide your practice. You can purchase your own, or I have one copy of each available to loan out. Invite a few other Cappers to read and pray along with you!
