Theme of the Retreat:

Discovering the Power of Prayer


“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”
Philippians 4:6, ESV


Prayer is communication with God. Through Jesus Christ, we are invited to sit on the lap of Abba our Father, to seek His grace and receive His blessings. He is willing and able to meet all of our needs. Prayer is conversation; it is a time for adoration, confession, thanksgiving and supplication, and a time to listen to what God has to say to us. We approach God in faith, trusting that He will hear us and will speak His grace into our lives.

Martin Luther said, “To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing.”

What does your prayer life look like? Do you spend daily time with God? Do you seek His guidance in all things, big and small? Do you want to learn new ways to grow closer to Him?

During the retreat we will look at the prophet Daniel and learn the keys to his faithful prayer life. We will learn devotional practices that will help us focus on our relationship with Abba our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ. We will consider the risks and benefits of delving into deeper, more intimate conversation with God.

We will spend time in corporate prayer as well as time in private conversation. We will find peace in the serenity of camp and enjoy the company of our sisters in Christ. We will worship God and together we will explore ways to enhance our prayer lives.

Join us January 25-27, 2019 as we discover the power of prayer.
