We would like to invite you to join us in a life of Contemplative Prayer....

It begins with Jesus fasting and praying for 40 days in the wilderness. It leads to the Garden of Gethsemene with Jesus deep in prayer, even as He's sweating blood in preparation for Calvary. And the final result of all that prayer is the Son of God, in perfect harmony with His Father, restoring us to the state of Grace we once had in the Garden of Eden.
 
Prayer doesn't always lead to immediate miracles. It can take us along a long path of pain and suffering here in this fallen world, where struggle and conflict are part of our daily challenge
. Prayer can lead us to a willingness to accept the Father's Will without conditions. It can lead us along the slow trek from the wilderness to Calvary, from Christmas Morning in Bethlehem to Easter Sunday in Jerusalem. It ultimately leads to Life Eternal through the Love that's found in Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  <bgsound src="I'm Praisin' His Name.mp3" loop="infinite">
