Widows: When You Pray - Woodard - West Ridge Church

Widows Group – When You Pray

This group is for widows of all ages and in all stages of life. Our group contains women from their early 30s to their 70s. We encourage one another, pray for one another, and love to welcome new friends to our group. We would love to meet you! This semester we will go through the study “When You Pray,” summarized below:

Do you have trouble thinking of words to say to God when you pray? Are you afraid some emotions are too intense to express to God? Do you reach the end of a day only to realize you haven’t prayed at all? You’re not alone. Prayer is the way we relate to God, but sometimes it’s a struggle. Throughout God’s Word, we encounter many voices who teach us how to pray.

In this 7-session study, join with six beloved Bible teachers who will help you study prayers in the Bible that can inspire your own. You’ll learn that God welcomes your praise and lament, your thanksgiving and intercession. You’ll see examples of how to pray when you’re alone and when you’re gathered with others. Above all, you’ll notice there’s no one right way to pray. As you draw near to God through prayer, you’ll find your faith strengthened and your heart united to Christ.
