Prayer Therapy Group for Women
Peace, Purpose, & Happiness
Today’s life is filled with struggles. How does one fine contentment, peace, even joy? This group focuses on ingredients of happiness through the implementation of service, connection, acceptance, and forgiveness.
Assessment and candid guidance amidst a supportive community is offered to hellp each individual explore the sacred in their lives through prayer, fellowship and accountability.
Prayer is a key component to this group. However, it is not necessary to have a faith or religious affiliation to join this group. We thrive to make prayer a practice in honesty–to search and reveal all the fear, guilt, hate, and inferiority in our mind and keep our eyes focused on the concept of the Healing Power–a God of love.
This group will meet every other Tuesday at 5-6:30 p.m. beginning in late January-May. For more information or to register, contact Melissa at 962-475-2818, ext. 1010.
