"THE PRIMARY PURPOSE OF PRAYER IS NOT TO GET GOD TO DO WHAT YOU THINK GOD OUGHT TO DO, BUT TO BE PROPERLY FORMED..." - BRIAN ZAHND
Prayer is one of those things that we as Christians know we're supposed to do, but almost none of us have ever been trained to pray in a way that can spiritually form and enrich us.
Prayer School with Brian Zahnd is designed to provide a convenient setting for you to learn about, and actively engage in, the prayer regimen that Brian has developed during a lifetime of pastoral ministry. This prayer school will help you gain a completely fresh perspective on the purpose of prayer, and will provide you with a valuable, sustainable framework for community and personal prayer life.
This will be a quiet, contemplative gathering, and so we encourage you to dress casually and comfortably.
Brian Zahnd is the founder and lead pastor of Word of Life Church in St. Joseph, Missouri.
