Step 11: Putting Prayer and  Meditation into Practice – Serenity 12-Step Retreat

January 6, 2023 @ 5:45 pm January 8, 2023 @ 1:00 pm

Presented by Candace Bahr

Step 11 “Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood him, praying only for the knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry it out.”

Prayer and meditation are our principal means of conscious contact with God. We have seen self-searching as the means by which we bring new vision, action and grace to bear upon the dark and negative side of our natures. This step is a development of that kind of humility that makes it possible for us to receive God’s help. Yet it is only a step and we will want to go further. (Pg. 98, 12&12)

On this retreat you will be encouraged to develop a personal daily prayer and meditation plan. We will look at several types of prayer and meditations from different traditions. The hope is to practice these together as a group and also in your own personal reflection time.

What we have is a daily reprieve contingent on our spiritual fitness!
