Have you ever wondered about why we pray? Have you ever struggled with “how” to pray? This Lenten retreat will discuss the practice of prayer from both sides: why we pray, including biblical, historical, and theological understandings of prayer and also hands-on experience with different practices of prayer within the Christian – and Episcopalian – tradition.
