30 Days of Prayer for People Who Are Too Busy to Pray

What is “Coming Home?”

Prayer is a journey into God – a journey home. Coming Home is a 30-day small group workshop to help busy people get closer to God through prayer, reflection and meditation. In addition to group meetings, participants will engage in short, daily prayer and reflections with the help of a 30-day prayer guide that has been created to accompany the workshop.

When does the workshop meet?

The group meets once a week for five weeks beginning Wednesday, October 14th. The workshop location will be the sanctuary at New Covenant, 1350 Five Mile Line Rd., Penfield, NY.

Meetings will begin at 6:30 and end by 8:00. At each of our meetings, we’ll talk about how to make vibrant and creative prayer a part of your everyday life, and then wrap up the meeting with a time of guided prayer and Christian meditation.

What are some of the topics that will be covered in the workshop?

Each of our five meetings will focus on a different aspect of creating a prayer-filled life. The week’s prayer exercises will provide opportunities to practice what you have learned.

Weekly topics include:

  1. Creating Space: Making room for prayer in your busy life
  2. Making Conversation: Having a more interesting dialogue with God
  3. Hearing God: Listening for God’s voice in the chaos of everyday life
  4. Being Still: Moving beyond words to an awareness of God’s presence
  5. Moving Forward: The first day of the rest of your life

How much does it cost?

The cost of the seminar is a suggested donation of $10 to cover the cost of materials. You can make checks payable to: New Covenant Fellowship.

What others are saying about “Coming Home” . . .

Here’s what a previous participant said about the Coming Home workshop:

“The Coming Home Series helped me establish a solid and consistent prayer life that I’ve always wanted but never was able to achieve. Since I’ve started to practice the simple steps laid out in the course, I’ve felt God’s presence in my life on a daily basis. Through this series, God has shown me so many new things about himself & even about myself.   I can’t believe that in 4 weeks I have grown so much. It’s exciting . . .”
