Twenty-one chapters on prayer, ten videos to discuss what we read, three videos to meet some of Angie’s and Jessica’s wise friends, and a few end-of-chapter prayers–this has been an intense, insightful, inspiring book, hasn’t it? Let’s look over our shoulder at what we’ve covered the past six weeks–
Moving Inward: Seeking the transformation we need
Prayer of the Forsaken
Prayer of Examen
Prayer of Tears
Prayer of Relinquishment
Moving Upward: Seeking the intimacy we need
Prayer of Adoration
Prayer of Rest
Prayer of the Heart
Moving Outward: Seeking the ministry we need
Praying the Ordinary
Prayer of Suffering
Transformation, Intimacy, Ministry–which movement seemed to be the area you most needed or felt led to address? Which prayer(s) in particular is calling out to you? For you to pray for yourself, for those in your life, for the world? Can you sum up your impressions of our study on prayer?
We’re already praying over and considering our next Bloom Book Club selection, and Jessica and Angie will let you know what it is as soon as they can. In the meantime, we’ll have Recommended Reads published in a few weeks featuring some wonderful authors and their books. Please sign up for exclusive emails for Bloom so you can receive those and news of the next selection.
Thank you for joining in the conversation in comments and on Facebook (have you liked our page yet?). We’re also grateful for the majority of readers who’ve followed along quietly, taking in what you’ve read, seen and heard and allowing the Lord to transform and revolutionize your personal prayer life. To Him be the glory alone.
On a closing note, thank you for your warm welcome to me! I’ve been challenged by Foster’s work, encouraged and delighted by your words, and I look forward to our next Bloom Book Club. If you have any comments or suggestions for the type posts you’d like to see to companion the videos, please drop me a line; I’d love to hear your constructive thoughts (just drop me an email at pensieve(dot)me(at)gmail(dot)com). ~ Robin
