Considering Various Ways to Pray as New Year’s Resolution!

Sister Lovina and Sister Mary Kay discuss various prayer forms not commonly known but easy to incorporate in our daily lives as a way to start the new year and develop a prayer practice as disciples/followers of Jesus. Try prayer walking (maybe a labyrinth walk!) or using music and poetry to help quiet our centers and make space for God. Prayer can be the container/unifying factor to help us with our top resolutions (better health practices, saving money or improving our relationships).
