About this course: Anyone who is called upon to lead public prayer may feel anxious and possibly inadequate for such a task. This course offers help for novices as well as veteran leaders of prayer as they create and deliver appropriate prayers for those on whose behalf the prayer is offered.

Course goals:

  • Consider what public prayer is and is not;
  • Acquire practical guidelines for avoiding common pitfalls;
  • Explore prayers as an integral part of worship;
  • Discuss the kind of language we need, and don’t need, to address God.

Order Your Book!

All participants are expected to read the participant book, Let the Whole Church Say Amen by Laurence Hull Stookey, before taking this course.

For questions about the course, please contact Corridor district LSM co-director Vicki Ambrose, vambrose@nccumc.org.
