2-Way Prayer: Communication with God

Meeting Time: Saturday, February 29, 2020; 9:00AM-5:00PM
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!

I learned a great deal and am so appreciative! Thank you for everything you did for me (us)! My soul was revived and will, I pray, continue to be so! Glory be to God!” –RGS
