Off down to London to take part in the Living Waters UK / Redeemed Lives “Alive Again” retreat day with Mario Bergner. Hurrah!!!
Join us in Central London on the 10th of November, 2007 for a joint Redeemed Lives UK and Living Waters UK conference featuring Mario Bergner. Mario will be leading us as we learn to hear “The Shepherd’s Voice”, with teaching and healing insight based on the prayer that Jesus taught us – the Our Father.
The Shepherd’s Voice
Using the Bible as the basis for hearing God, this seminar explores the age-old discipline of lectio divina, praying the Holy Scriptures. Mario Bergner draws from Dallas Willard’s book Hearing God: Developing a Conversational Relationship with God, and uses the five different types of prayer (praise, thanksgiving, intercession, petition and forgiveness) contained within the Lord’s Prayer as a model of speaking with God. Other prayer exercises include listening for the healing word, bringing up desires of the heart and applying forgiveness. We provide a companion workbook that contains lecture notes as well as worksheets for the various prayer exercises conducted throughout the day.
