The School of Discipleship is a one year programme offered by the Commission. It comprises 40 sessions, including Understanding Scripture, Reading the Word of God and Sacraments. This is a short excerpt from the session on Prayer.
Introduction Rejoice always, pray constantly, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (1 Thess 5:16–18).
Paul in his letter to the Corinthians tells us to “pray constantly”. This does not mean we need to keep saying one ‘Our Father’ after another, but to be in continuous communion with God, regardless of what we might be doing or where we may be. Getting to this state, however, takes some doing and these four elements help immensely in achieving that.
