Faith Formation – Lectio – Prayer

Discover and open your heart and mind to the profound importance, meaning, purpose, and beauty of Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, as seen through the eyes of the Church.

Though prayer is one of the essentials of a thriving faith, we often feel as if we’re talking to ourselves. Or, worse, we feel like we’re talking to no one at all. How can something so vital to the faith be so elusive?

Now, the mystery of prayer is made clear through the engaging teaching and artistry of the Augustine Institute’s Lectio series are brought together in Prayer: Finding Intimacy with God. Renowned speaker Dr. Tim Gray masterfully uses the ancient Church’s tradition of lectio divina to show you the simple steps for making prayer an effort of love and intimacy with God.
