A Praying Life Seminar

During this Friday & Saturday event, learn to pray as Jesus prayed as we are guided through Jesus' own teaching and style of praying.

January 12, 2018 7:00pm To January 13, 2018 12:30pm

This seminar was postponed from the original date of September 8 & 9 due to Hurricane Irma. Please see the new rescheduled dates of January 12 & 13, 2018.


Join Bob Allums from seeJesus Ministries for this weekend event. We’ll kick off on Friday evening with the first session, and continue on Saturday morning, beginning with breakfast together and two morning sessions, finishing at 12:30pm.

This seminar is not for victorious Christians, but Christians defeated in the trenches, asking…

How do I focus when I’m distracted with so much to do?
How do I pray longer than five minutes?
How do I ask when I’ve tried it before and it doesn’t work?

Delving into our frustrations, we look at Jesus’ powerful, yet simple teachings on prayer. We practice becoming child-like, patterning after Jesus’ own teaching and style of praying. We learn to ask our Father anything – with eyes wide open to the story he is creating in our lives. Further practical tools and helps are explained and demonstrated. Throughout the sessions people have time to pray, making real what they learned.

Our desire is to keep costs low so that no one is unable to attend. The cost includes materials and breakfast on Saturday morning.

The cost for the weekend is $20 per person, or $30 per couple.
Childcare is available for all sessions with an additional fee of $10 per family.

This is a great opportunity to rally your community group to attend the seminar together! Our community groups are encouraged to follow the “A Praying Life” 12-week group study together throughout the spring semester, as you practice the principles learned and invite each other into a life of prayer.
