Praying for Justice and Peace (Spirituality & Practice)

Source: Spirituality & Practice

Praying for justice and peace is one response to the situations in the world, and it is available to everyone. But many of us are unsure how to pray and what to pray for. We may question the efficacy of prayer and wonder about a God that “allows” such suffering. In our confusion, we may never respond to our longing to pray.

This Online Retreat gives us an opportunity to explore these valid questions and free our minds and hearts for prayer. The lessons cover such themes as the five forms of prayer (intercession, action, soul care, discernment, transformation), answers to prayer, calls to action and rest, and the power and promise of a peaceful heart. The course consists of:

• 12 email lessons
• 4 guided audio meditations designed to help you develop your prayer practice
• Recording of a one=hour teleconference with Jane Vennard from when this e-retreat was first offered in February 2012.

This retreat was created by Jane Vennard, who also helmed our e-course on Intercessory Prayer. She is one of Spirituality & Practice’s Living Spiritual Teachers and the author of Embracing the World and other books on prayer. A United Church of Christ minister, she is a professor of prayer and spirituality at Iliff School of Theology in Denver, Colorado. She has been a spiritual director for more than 20 years and has led retreats on many kinds of prayer in international ecumenical settings.

Praying for peace with justice is always a work in progress. This prayer retreat is designed to help you engage in and contribute to this holy work.

(4 CEHs for Chaplains available.)
