Spiritual Practices

Hours of Prayer
These simple services for Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer are based on ancient traditions that originate in the daily prayer of the Jewish community and the early centuries of the church.

Lectio Divina
This holy reading is a way of praying the words of the Bible. Early Christians used lectio divina as a meditative tool to go deeper with God and these holy texts. Lectio Divina literally means “divine reading.”

Prayer Beads
Prayer beads are used in many religions and cultures throughout the world. You may have seen them as Catholic Rosary beads, but other forms of prayer beads or prayer ropes are used in Islam, Buddhism Hinduism, Sikhism and yes – even Protestantism.

Jesus Prayer
Praying with the rhythm of breath. The rediscovery of ancient spiritual practices in the postmodern church has revived interest in the “Jesus Prayer” or “Prayer of the Heart.” Many 21st-century Christians have found in this simple method of prayer a discipline that can lead beyond words to silent contemplation of God’s loving presence.
