What is SIMPLY PRAYING?

Simply Praying is made in the context of our everyday life. Each person in the group will commit themselves to 20 minutes reflective prayer each day and the two hour weekly session. Including the Introductory evening there are 9 sessions (9 weeks).

The prayer is based on Bible passages and you will be show how to use them in different ways to draw closer to God. There will be handouts for you to refer to for ideas and direction. Simply Praying is based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola.

The sessions will be led by the Chaplain of Rydal Hall, David Wilmot who has undertaken the full Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius and so is familiar with the material. He will also be committed to joining in with the other members of the group. He will undertake to be available and on call to help, listen and encourage.

What will it be like?

The first session will be on 23rd February at 7.00pm. This will be an introduction and during the week which follows you will be welcome to decide whether the Simply Praying is for you at this stage in your life. If itis not for you then it’s perfectly acceptable for you to step aside.

Places will have to be limited and a waiting list will also be available. There is no charge but donations to Rydal Hall to cover the cost of materials will be appreciated.

How will it help?

Experience shows that a concentrated period of prayer like this can have tremendous value resulting in a deepening of our prayer and growth in awareness of God`s presence and love in our daily living. The sharing of experiences of prayer with others can also be a source of new insight and inspiration.

When and Where?

The sessions will take place at Rydal Hall on Wednesday evenings at 7.00pm and will end by 9.00pm. Tea/Coffee & biscuits will be available.
