Forming a New Prayer Group
If you are interested in joining or forming a new prayer group help is available.
Contemplative Outreach of West Michigan would be happy to discuss with you ways to start a group, or give you direction where to find an existing group. We can also direct you to resource material proven to grow and enhance both the group and personal experience of Contemplative Prayer. Much of this material is available at no cost, and for some there is a nominal charge – but all has proven to be effective and valuable.
The right size for a Prayer Group is generally 5 to 12 people. Participants need to be committed to meeting on a regular basis for the purpose of enhancing personal prayer life. A group, after only a few sessions, will take on a unique persona and the synergy of the Holy Spirit working within the group is a discernible reward. Participation in regular group sessions reenforces your personal prayer experience and helps grow the Divine Union within.
For an initial discussion about joining an existing prayer group, or starting a new group, please complete our ‘more information‘ form and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.
