Pray Like Jesus (PLJ) Group (Fall 2016)
Wednesday, November 2, 2016 at 12:00 PM - Wednesday, December 7, 2016 at 12:00 PM (CDT)
A PLJ group is a small group of people who walk together through a 6 week journey using the book Prayers from the Pit. Over those 6 weeks, you’ll get to learn and practice 12 ways of praying. Each prayer practice grows out a specific way in which Jesus prayed, as revealed in his prayers recorded in the Gospels. All of this happens online and/or by phone. You can participate from anywhere!
Purchase a copy of the book (print or electronic) prior to the start date, but don't start reading. You can find print and electronic editions at amazon.com and 21st Century Christian. Copies can also be purchased at the Highland Church of Christ in Memphis, TN.
On the start date, you'll call into a conference call for a ten minute introduction from Chris that will launch the group (the phone number will be provided in an email; the call takes place at noon CST). The following day, we begin! Each day you'll either read a chapter in the book or engage in a prayer-practice related to the most recent chapter. The experience is designed to be brief, taking 10-15 minutes/day total.
Each day you'll recieve an email from Chris giving you encouragement and guidance as we read and engage in Jesus' 12 prayer-practices, one by one. Each Wednesday, at noon CST, you'll call the conference number and join the rest of the group for ten minute huddle for mutual encouragement and guidance.
6 weeks. 7 call-in huddles. 12 prayer-practices. 10-15 minutes/day.
