The Thursday Morning Prayer Group invites you to join Ramsey Church in daily prayer: Choose a time of day, a length of time, and a particular place in which to pray daily; the repetition of these elements helps to create a supportive rhythm in our prayer life.

Dear Lord, you have called me by my name.
You have carved me in the palm of your hand.
May I grow in trust and never give in to despair.

Lord, I let go of the worries, resentments and fears
That I can sometimes hold on to so tightly.
Let me open my hands and my heart to receive freely
All the gifts that I need at this time.” – Sacred Space 2017

 

WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY  There will be a 4-week study on Bill Hybels “Too Busy Not to Pray”.  The study will be in room 105 at 6:30pm, on June 13, June 16, June 27, and July 11.  This study will encourage us to make prayer a priority and help us to understand how powerful prayer is when we slow down and take time to pray.    We will learn the importance of a consistent time and place for prayer, how to organize prayers, how to hear the Spirit’s promptings and to learn to love prayer time.
