Like a Tree Planted by Streams of Water
This resource invites us to practice prayer in ordinary life. We are called to pray without ceasing, but in today’s hurried life this is difficult. Lauren helps us to see ways we can pray focused prayers as we go about our daily and weekly routines. Allow your daily encounters with water to bring prayers of justice, liberation, baptism, life, faith, and hearing from God into your daily routine.
For more than 60 years, the Evangelical Covenant Church has provided materials for a week of prayer during the month of January. Whether you choose to use this resource at the beginning of the year or at some other time, we want to both challenge and equip followers of Jesus to live a life of prayer and to continually seek new ways to develop this life-giving practice.
The Week of Prayer can be used by individuals or groups, over one week or over the course of seven weeks. Each day/week of the resource includes reflection and prayer prompts, but we encourage you to use these as starting points. Feel free to customize the resource for your purposes—adding your own prompts to further enhance the discussion and enrich your time of prayer.
