Are there youth and adults in your congregation who want to enrich their relationship with God through prayer?

How to Pray in Your Own Way is a new resource designed for youth or adult groups with lay leadership. Along with the five-session Leader’s Guide, there is a Participant’s Workbook that extends learning between sessions with information summaries and additional ideas for practicing the new forms of prayers.

Former Presbyterian Record youth columnist, Kathy Cawsey, wrote and used this resource at Knox Presbyterian Church in Waterloo, Ontario. Drawing on the work of the Anglican priest and author Bruce Duncan, Kathy uses an experiential learning approach to introduce four forms of prayer that connect with four different psychological functions—sensing, intuition, understanding and feeling—and with two different personality  attitudes—introversion and extroversion.

Each session includes poetry, scripture, hymns and prayer exercises. In the fifth and final session, participants are given suggestions on how to incorporate their learning not only into their own prayer life, but also into the prayers of their church’s worship services.
