Praying in 4 Dimensions
A 7 day guided prayer experience
"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your
soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength."
This is the great commandment, affirmed by Jesus. It tells us to love
God with our whole self, which Jesus defines for us as our heart, soul,
mind, and strength. And if we can love God with our whole self, doesn't
it make sense that we can also pray to God that way. To pray with our
whole self is to engage all that we are, all four dimensions of who we
are, our heart, soul, mind, and strength (body) in our prayer. To pray in
this way is to put our whole self into communion with our God.
This seven day prayer retreat will guide you in prayers that use all four
of these dimensions. Each of the first four days will introduce prayers
from one of these dimensions of self. Day 1 is praying with the mind,
day 2 is praying with the body, day 3 is praying with the heart, and day
4 is praying with the soul. The final three days will explore ways to
combine all four to create all encompassing times of prayer.
During this prayer retreat you will be invited to discover the expressions
of your heart, soul, mind, and body that enrich your prayer life.
