The Art of Praying Scriptures Card

The Art of Praying Scriptures Study Card is inspired by the book and 2-CD Teaching of the same name. This study card includes the 9 steps to preparing you body, soul and spirit for contemplative prayer, as well as some of John Paul's favorite Scripture passages to practice this spiritual discipline on.

The Bible is the Word of God. That makes it more than a historical book of record. It’s a living and breathing extension of Diety. Within its pages hold truths about the past, present and future, often interwoven amongst the same lines of Scripture. Each of these truths unfold layers of meaning to those who read and hear its instruction. There is power in Scripture. This prayer card is designed to be a "carry anywhere" reminder that you can enter a different level of Scriptural understanding by first preparing yourself to hear the Word of God.

Cultivating an Effective Prayer Life

In this 7.5 hour seminar you will learn these concepts and more as you are inspired to pray and encounter God's heart in a deeper way.
"The result of a well-prayed life is an interior reality that does not resist the presence of God." This phrase rose in John's spirit as he was preparing to teach on prayer and became the foundation for this course. How can we steward our hearts so that our whole life becomes a prayer? How can we intentionally cultivate an atmosphere of the presence of God so that we influence circumstances and situations around us? When we explore the reality of the new creation and the ""one Spirit with God"" that Paul talks about in 1 Corinthians 6:17, how would our prayer life change? What can we learn about expanding the kingdom of God through prayer by meditating on the Garden east of Eden, the New Jerusalem, and the ministry of Jesus? What role does Scripture reading, study, and meditation have in shaping our hearts and spirits?
