Week of Guided Prayer

Each year in the spring members of the congregation are invited to participate in a Week of Guided Prayer.

During this retreat – in the midst of everyday life – retreatants spend time each day praying Scripture as well as meeting with a companion who has been trained to journey with each person along their spiritual journey.  The materials for this retreat are prepared through an ecumenical initiative with the Hamilton conference of the United Church of Canada and can be found on the Week of Guided Prayer Network.


Week of Guided Prayer 2017

Woven with Gods Love

April 30 – May 6

Our lives are part of a tapestry that began at the dawn of time. God, the Master Weaver, drew in rich colours to create light and dark, seas and skies, earth, plants, animals. Then God did an amazing thing. In love, God wove people into this wonderful, ever-changing picture of life.

We are not just part of God’s creation but are invited to be co-creators with the One who is Holy Mystery and Wholly Love. Through prayer we are drawn closer to the One who continues to weave with love.

We invite you to join us in this week so you may experience a deepening relationship with God. The opening two-hour session will begin at 12:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 30, and will include instruction on praying scripture. The closing two-hour session will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 6th.

Commitment to this Week of Guided Prayer involves spending 30 minutes praying scripture at home, and then coming to Knox PC Sixteen for another 30 minutes with a “prayer companion” each day of the retreat week, from Monday to Friday.
