Life IN Christ 7-Week Seminars

2-Way Prayer: Communication with God

Meeting Time: Saturday, August 29, 2020; 9:00 AM-5:00 PM
Description: We are taught that God has saved us so that we can have a relationship with Him. How do we have a relationship if we can’t see, hear, or feel the One we are in relationship with? The Bible is filled with accounts of men and women interacting with a living God.  Does God “speak” today…to you and me? What does His “Voice” sound like? How do I know that what I am “hearing” is God? Is there something I can do to hear from God more often and with greater clarity? Through this interactive study based on Four Keys to Hearing God’s Voice, you will find the answers to these questions and many others. You will develop a more personal, intimate relationship with God through two-way journaling. Your prayer life will “explode” with excitement!
