Teach us to pray: Prayer shapes who we are
Since 1983, the Anglican Fellowship of Prayer (AFP) has been mandated to encourage the ministry of prayer in Canada. As a resource to the Church, the AFP aims to foster a habit of prayer among Anglicans, providing resources to engage individuals and groups in conversation with God. Deepening our prayer can give us access to that experience with more consistency – and when we need it most. The Anglican Fellowship of Prayer wants to help us do just that.
The Anglican Fellowship of Prayer offers a variety of prayer resources through its website www.anglicanprayer.org Among the available resources are downloadable video series which could easily form the basis of a parish study program.
As the AFP diocesan representative I’d be pleased to assist you and your parish to deepen your practice of prayer. If you have a question about prayer or topic you’d like to know more about, resources from the AFP catalogue can easily be emailed to you or printed and sent to you. And if time permits, I’m available to visit your parish or group for a prayer workshop or to consult with you by phone.
You can reach me by email at [email protected] , by phone at 902-463-2493 or by snail mail at St. Alban’s Anglican Church, 345 Pleasant St., Dartmouth NS B2Y 3S4
Prayer shapes who we are – and in turn, enables us to re-shape the world.
