Prayer, Stress, and Our Inner Wounds (The Upper Room)

This online course explores Flora Wuellner’s book Prayer, Stress and Our Inner Wounds, and several types of pain are examined: physical pain, painful memories, forgotten wounds, the pain of uncertainty, the pain of stress and anxiety. Flora suggests practical ways by which prayer can help us experience inner healing. The reader learns how to cooperate with God, trusting the grace of God’s love rather than rigid discipline and techniques. As Wuellner says, “God is asking for relatedness not rules.”

A key practice Flora offers is guided prayer that engages our imagination. These guided prayer practices are found throughout the content of Prayer, Stress and Our Inner Wounds. We invite you to engage in a healing journey through Flora’s book and guided prayer practices.

This online course includes:

All essential content from Flora’s book Prayer, Stress, and Our Inner Wounds
