About the Gathering
What’s the secret to taking your prayer life to the next level? Our speakers Michele Faehnle and Emily Jaminet say that it’s all about spending time with God, rather than demanding things from him. “As I learned to stop making demands of God, and simply rest in the silence,” writes Michele in their book Pray Fully. “I began to hear God calling me and beckoning me to draw closer to him.” Over time, the noisy, self-centered monologue that had once been her habit grew into a fuller, more mature dialogue of love.
During this short, inspirational webinar gathering, Michele and Emily share basic prayer principles that have helped them to become women of prayer.
Join us on April 4 to enrich your prayer life!
