As we noted, today is the end of our 40 Days of Prayer journey, but the just the beginning of our next chapter of listening to and speaking with God in close conversation!. We pray that it has been a time of growth in our awareness of God’s presence and love both in our lives and in the world.
As we mentioned on our Instagram post, here are some resources you might find helpful as you continue to grow in the spiritual discipline of prayer.
